Meanwhile, the “cardigan” hitmaker – who broke several records with “folklore,” including the Guinness World Record for the biggest opening day of a female artist’s album on Spotify – previously admitted. that she loved the “escape” that accompanied the writing of “imaginary / non-imaginary tales”, which deal with rejected marriage proposals, infidelity, revenge and murder, on both records.
She wrote on social media: âTo put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs. To try to say it more poetically, one has the impression of being at the edge of the folk woods and of having the choice: to turn around and leave or to travel further in the forest of this music. We have chosen to go further and my collaborators and I are proud to announce that my 9th studio album and the brother folklore album are here. It’s always called more.
âI’ve never done this before. In the past, I always treated albums as unique eras and started planning the next one as soon as an album came out. There was something different about it. folklore. While doing it I felt less like leaving and more like coming back. Loved the escape I found in these imaginary / non-imaginary tales. Loved the way you welcomed the dreamscapes and lost and found epic tragedies and love stories. writing them. And I loved making these songs with Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, WB and Justin Vernon. We also hosted new ( and longtime) friends at our musical kitchen table this time aroundâ¦
She continued, âBefore I knew it there were 17 stories, some of which either mirror or overlap. The one about two young crooks falling in love while hanging out in posh resorts trying to score wealthy romantic beneficiaries. The one where longtime college lovers had very different plans for the same night, one to end it and the other who brought a ring. Dorothea, the girl who left her small town to pursue Hollywood dreams – and what happens when she comes back for the holidays and rediscovers an old flame.
âThe ‘Sadly Forever’ anthology of marriages gone awry, which includes infidelity, ambivalent tolerance and even murder. One with my grandmother, Marjorie, who still visits me sometimesâ¦ if only in my dreams.
âI wanted to surprise you with this the week of my 31st birthday. You have all been so caring, supportive and caring on my birthdays and so this time I wanted to give you something! I also know this holiday season will be a lonely one. for most of us and if any of you turn to music to deal with the missing like I do, this is for you. (sic) “
