Swift is known for songs like “Blank Space,” “All Too Well,” and “Shake It Off.” The Grammy Award-winning created the sister album of Folklore between re-recording versions of her already-released songs. Evermore, also released in 2020, featured folk-inspired songs performed by the pop artist.

“So what I felt after we put out Folklore was, like, ‘Oh wow, people are into this too, this thing that feels really good for my life and feels really good for my creativity,’” Swift said during an interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music. “I saw a lane for my future that … it was a real breakthrough moment of excitement and happiness.”
