The concert film, which doubles as a documentary, was announced early in the morning of Nov. 24. Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions is hitting the streaming service at midnight on Nov. 25.
In the trailer, the “Invisible String” crooner is seen jamming along with collaborators Aaron Dessner of The National and Jack Antonoff, who both worked with Swift on Folklore ,(As a fun coincidence, Folklore got nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys the same day this trailer came out.)
Swift ,starts things off in the trailer by saying, “There’s something about the complete and total uncertainty of life. If we’re going to have to recalibrate everything, we should start with what we love the most first.”
She is, of course, referring to the fact that this album was written in quarantine during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which upended so many lives. The star also said the album was her saving grace keeping her sanity afloat during isolation.
“It’s an album that allows you to feel your feelings, and it’s a product of isolation ,” she said, later adding, “This could’ve been a time where I absolutely lost my mind. And instead I think this album was like a real flotation device for both of us.”
