Tonight (Tues, Dec 15th), Taylor Swift joins host Zane Lowe on Apple Music to discuss this year’s surprise release sister albums Folklore and Evermore, and the excitement of being awarded the Apple Music Award for Songwriter of the Year. During the hour-long sit down interview, Swift expresses her desires to continue collaborating with Jack Antonoff, Aaron Dessner, and Justin Vernon, feeling open creatively, how these songs have served as a “flotation device” during a challenging year, and much more.
Swift’s entire interview with Zane Lowe can be viewed on Apple Music, Apple Music TV, or the Apple TV app. The interview will also be available on demand on Apple Music.
In a separate interview with Jimmy Kemmel, Swift clears up the rumors that a third surprise album, called Woodvale, is on the way after fans spot the code word in the artwork of Folklore.
“When I was making Folklore, the album that came out back in July, I was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management. I didn’t tell anybody the album title until right before it came out,” Swift states. “And so I came up with a fake codename that had the same amount of letters as Folklore, chose a random name, chose Woodvale. Wanted to see how it would look on the album covers, mocked them up, and then decided, I don’t actually want to have a title on the album covers and we forgot to take the fake codename off of one of them.”
She said Evermore was codenamed November while in production.
“We remembered to take it off all the mock-ups of the album covers before we released them this time. We learned our lesson,” she says.
