Taylor Swift has excited her fans across the world with the shock announcement that she'll be releasing her 8th studio album at midnight tonight!

The singer has been using her time in lockdown to create the album and is now ready for the world to hear it.

"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." she wrote on her Instagram.

"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. I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine..."

She went on to reveal that she's been working some of her musical hereos and longtime collaborators for the album - Aaron Dessner, Bon Iver, Will Bowery and Jack Antonoff are among them.

"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."

The album will have 16 tracks in total, so plenty to sink your teeth into!

The countdown is on - we can't wait to hear what new sound Taylor has gone for with her 8th album 'folklore'.
