Two days ago, Taylor Swift took to Instagram to caption a photo of herself with “not a lot going on at the moment.” This is an all too familiar moment for Swifties.
Taylor Swift and her definition of “not a lot going on at the moment.”
Seemingly at the edge of their seats, Swifties remember the last time that caption was used. Taylor Swift unexpectedly dropped an entire album at midnight, following a photo with the same caption. Consequently, Teen Vogue hit the nail on the head. In April, Swift used the exact same caption right before she droped folklore. Ultimately, it appears that “not a lot going on at the moment,” might be a coy reference. A reference to “the calm before the storm.”
The now iconic caption makes another appearance with Taylor Swift’s latest announcement. On Instagram, she captions a trailer to folklore: the long pond studio sessions with, “Well it’s 11/24 and 24-11=13 so I’ve got an announcement. Seemingly, this caption is two-fold. It leads fans to expect mega T. Swift news on any date deduced to the number 13. Additionally, it reminds everyone of the megastar’s favorite number.
About folklore: the long pond studio sessions
It’s hard to explain folklore: the long pond studio sessions without going into the history of the album folklore. ETOnline recounts that Jack Antonoff, The National’s Aaron Dessner, and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon came in with the assist for this 17 song album. Remarkably, all these moving pieces came together while working thousands of miles apart at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Luckily for fans, the film, folklore: the long pond studio session documents the group meeting in-person for the first time. Additionally, they play the entire album and “share stories about each of the 17 songs,” reports ETOnline.
Notably, Taylor Swift directs the movie. Remarkably, this exciting behind the scenes look of her music-making process is kept under wraps since filming began in September. While quarantine may be harder on some than others, Swift shares how “making the album improved her time in quarantine.” Goosebump invoking, she says, “It’s an album that allows you to feel your feelings and it’s a product of isolation.”
There’s something about the production of this album that seems to invoke raw emotion for those involved in the production. Taylor Swift uses the process of making an album during quarantine a metaphor for a flotation device. “This could’ve been a time where I absolutely lost my mind and instead, I think, this album was like a real flotation device for both of us,” Swift says speaking of herself and Dessner.
