After the series of pictures, she posted a complete picture, where she wrote, "Most of the things I had planned this summer didn't end up happening, but there is something I hadn't planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore. Surprise Tonight at midnight; I'll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs I've poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into."

Taylor continued, "I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; @aarondessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), @boniver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and @jackantonoff (who is basically musical family at this point). Engineered by Laura Sisk and Jon Low, mixed by Serban Ghenea & Jon Low. The album photos were shot by the amazing @bethgarrabrant."
Taylor added, "Before this year, I probably would've overthought when to release this music at the 'perfect' time, but the times we're living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That's the side of uncertainty I can get on board with. Love you guys so much. ♥️"

Following the post, Swift revealed the release date and a little info about her album. Taylor wrote, "Folklore will have 16 songs on the standard edition, but the physical deluxe editions will include a bonus track called 'the lakes.'"
The singer added, "Because this is my 8th studio album, I made 8 deluxe CD editions and 8 deluxe vinyl editions that are available for one week.😄 Each deluxe edition has unique covers, photos, and artwork. Available exclusively at taylorswift.com"
