“Folklore” is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on July 24, 2020, with little prior promotion, marking a departure from Swift’s usual album rollout strategy. The album is a significant departure from her previous pop-infused sound, instead embracing a more indie folk and alternative style.

The album features a more subdued and introspective sound, characterized by acoustic guitars, piano, atmospheric production, and a focus on storytelling. The songs on the album explore themes of introspection, love, loss, nostalgia, and personal growth.

“Folklore” received widespread critical acclaim upon its release. Critics praised the album’s departure from Swift’s pop sound, highlighting its lyrical depth, emotional resonance, and atmospheric production. It was often compared to indie folk and alternative acts, signaling a new artistic direction for Swift.
