Taylor Swift – Evermore

​In her second surprise album of the year, Taylor Swift continues to show off her folksy side while blessing fans with even more cottagecore.

​As the sequel to Folklore, Evermore demonstrates how far Swift has come since her career began by showcasing her maturity as a storyteller.

​Far past her days as a bright-eyed starlet, Swift dedicates this album to exploring deeper themes of betrayal, love and loss.

Like its sister album, Evermore features mostly fictional tales sprinkled with some non-fictional details from Swift’s own life.

​Specifically, Champagne Problems tells the hauntingly beautiful story of a made-up proposal gone wrong, whereas Coney Island includes numerous references to Swift’s past high-profile relationships.

​From upbeat singles like Willow to heart-wrenching tracks like Happiness, Evermore offers a full collection of lyrical genius and musical mastery — there are simply no skips.
