Taylor Swift announces surprise 9th album Evermore will be out TONIGHT

TAYLOR Swift has announced her surprise ninth album Evermore will be out TONIGHT.

The 30-year-old singer teased that she would be making a big personal announcement today at 1pm.

And she took to Instagram to tell fans: "I’m elated to tell you that my 9th studio album, and folklore’s sister record, will be out tonight at midnight eastern.

"It’s called evermore. To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs.

"To try and put it more poetically, it feels like we were standing on the edge of the folklorian woods and had a choice: to turn and go back or to travel further into the forest of this music.

"We chose to wander deeper in. I’ve never done this before. In the past I’ve always treated albums as one-off eras and moved onto planning the next one after an album was released.

"There was something different with folklore. In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning.

"I loved the escapism I found in these imaginary/not imaginary tales. I loved the ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives. So I just kept writing them.

"And I loved creating these songs with Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, WB, and Justin Vernon. We’ve also welcomed some new (and longtime) friends to our musical kitchen table this time around…"

The pop star released her eighth studio album Folklore during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Taylor confessed when she released the album that she recorded it in complete isolation.

She sent demos back and forth to her producers and released the music by surprise in July after the cancellation of her Lover world tour.

She is currently re-recording her first six studio albums following a row with music exec Scooter Braun over ownership of the rights to her back catalogue, which she is no longer in control of.

Taylor, who has been nominated for six Grammys for Folklore, opened up about her experience re-recording old songs, including breakout 2008 hit Love Story.

She said: “I’ve been having a really good time re- recording my older music.

“It’s been the most fun doing Love Story, because the older music . . . my voice was so teenaged and sometimes when I hear my older music and my young teenage voice, it makes me feel like I’m a different singer now.

“It’s been the most fun to go back and re-record ones that I feel like I can actually, possibly improve upon.

“So that has been a really amazing, fun adventure.”

Fans suspected the "personal announcement" might be about her boyfriend of three years is British actor Joe Alwyn, 29, after rumours swirled that they might be engaged.

Joe is a British actor who starred in Oscar winner The Favourite as well as the critically-acclaimed The Sense of an Ending.

The Sun's Bizarre column exclusively revealed in May 2017 how Taylor had been dating Joe since 2016.

A source at the time said: “Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship.

“But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet.”

Taylor dated Harry Styles from November 2012 to January 2013 and also dated Calvin Harris for 15 months from March 2015.

Confirming the new romance, a close friend said: “This isn’t a new couple alert or a secret relationship – the only people this has been a secret to is the media because all of us, Taylor and Joe’s closest friends and their families, were aware they have been together for several months and have known each other for a long time.

“After her 1989 tour and all the attention Taylor received, she learned she had to be more protective of her personal life and she and Joe decided early on to keep their private life private.”

The superstar has homes in the US but she has been spending large stretches of time in England as it is where her actor boyfriend Joeis from.
