Just when it seemed 2020 had run out of surprises, last week Taylor Swift released a folk album. Folklore is a collection of stripped-down, largely piano-based songs that cast Swift as a rural tunesmith communing with the birds and the trees.

Her new direction is spelled out by the record's cover, with Swift posing moodily in ye olde misty woodlands, and by the video to the single 'Cardigan', where she plinks a piano covered in moss.
