Taylor Swift is dropping a surprise album tonight. It's called Folklore, and the Reputation superstar is previewing it with a socially-distanced music video. Let's hope the cast and crew kept plenty of blank space between them.
According to Swift's announcement on Twitter and Instagram, the album wasn't planned before the coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic left her with nothing to do. So she decided to shake it off and make a new record, which drops at midnight eastern time.

Swift also directed the first music video, entitled Cardigan. The singer did her own hair and makeup for the clip while the crew wore masks and medical staff kept an eye on things.
Aaron Dessner of The National co-wrote or produced 11 of the 16 tracks on Folklore, which earns bonus indie points thanks to an appearance by Bon Iver.
