Taylor Swift surprises fans with Folklore concert launch on Disney+

Posted: 24 November 2020 11:10 pm

With fans still unable to see Taylor Swift live in concert, the superstar is taking a session recording of her new album to them, exclusive to Disney+.

Taylor Swift has unveiled some surprise news for her legions of fans. Just in time for a Thanksgiving holiday in the US that will be unlike any other due to coronavirus, the American superstar will debut a concert session on streaming platform Disney+.

Swift released her latest album, Folklore, in July this year. It spent 3 weeks at number 1 on the charts and is one of the biggest selling albums of 2020.

With major restrictions on touring due to the pandemic, the 30-year-old Swift has filmed what has been billed as “an intimate concert of the record-breaking Folklore” at Long Pond Studio in New York.

“I’ve got an announcement,” Swift wrote in a post on Twitter. “You haven’t seen this film before. Folklore the long pond studio sessions will be out tonight at midnight PST on @DisneyPlus!”.
