While the rest were playing virtual quizzes on Zoom, the pop star rediscovered his sound and recorded two amazing albums – the second of which was released on Friday just hours after “Evermore” was announced.

Its July’s mega-hit, “Folklore,” Swift received his accolades for his return to vibrant melody and indie-inspired soundtracks, but injected a unique winter aesthetic and embarked on some unexpected song journeys.

The 15-song effort was hailed by many critics and fans alike in its release, as Swift explored the seamless continuation of the removed-back style in “Folk Tales”.

“I don’t know a lot about a lot of things these days, so I’m sticking to one thing that keeps me connected with all of you. That thing will always be, always will be music. And let it always go on,” Swift added.
