Taylor Swift said she has "no idea what will come next" after releasing her second surprise album in five months.

The pop superstar surprised fans on Thursday by announcing Evermore, a follow-up to chart-topping Folklore, which arrived without warning in July.

Swift, who will celebrate her 31st birthday tomorrow, described Evermore, her ninth studio album, as a "sister record" to its predecessor.


It contains 15 tracks, while there will be an additional two bonus songs on the deluxe version.

Shortly after it was released yesterday, Swift said: "I have no idea what will come next.

"I have no idea about a lot of things these days and so I've clung to the one thing that keeps me connected to you all.

"That thing always has and always will be music."

Swift created Folklore during the first lockdown and when announcing Evermore said, "to put it plainly, we just couldn't stop writing songs".

She has again worked with Aaron Dessner of rock band The National and singer-songwriter Jack Antonoff.

Swift shared the music video for the song Willow, featuring the singer exploring a pastoral scene.

Folklore was the first album of 2020 to sell a million copies.
