Taylor Swift’s surprise album Folklore gets a surprise Disney Plus concert session

Some soft, sad coziness for the tail end of fall

Over the summer, Taylor Swift dropped a surprise album called Folklore. In lieu of actual concerts in crowded stadiums, Folklore is getting the Disney Plus treatment with a recorded concert session premiering just ahead of Thanksgiving on Wednesday, Nov. 25.

While the original album was recorded earlier this year in isolation, when Swift and collaborators Aaron Dessner (The National), Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) were thousands of miles apart, the concert, titled Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions, was filmed in September.

Swift performs all 17 songs from the album during the show, which is set in a very lush and cozy looking cabin-like house — really fitting the whole woodsy, cottagecore vibe of Folklore itself. She will also reveal the full stories behind each song. The tracks on Folklore each tell some sort of story, be it the wild life of American heiress Rebekah Harkness, which inspired “The Last Great American Dynasty,” or the imagined teenage love triangle that fueled “Cardigan,” “August,” and “Betty.”
