Back in July, Taylor Swift surprised us all when she dropped her 8th studio album, folklore, the same day she announced its arrival on Instagram. At the time, she shared that she “wrote and recorded this music in isolation,” and so far, fans have only seen Swift perform one of the album’s tracks, “betty,” which she sang at the Academy of Country Music Awards in September.
But, of course, Swift had another surprise coming. On Tuesday, Good Morning America announced that Swift is releasing a new concert film titled folklore: the long pond studio sessions on Disney+ on Wednesday Nov. 25, at 12:01 a.m. PST.
While Swift originally made the album without being in the same room as her co-producers—Jack Antonoff and The National’s Aaron Dessner—this film brought them together for the very first time. Good Morning America reports that the film will feature Swift performing each song from folklore in order, with a guest appearance from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, while also revealing the meaning behind each track; the whole concert was shot at Dessner’s recording studio in upstate New York using a robotic camera in order to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols. Swift will then be back on Good Morning America Wednesday morning for an interview about the film.

In the film’s trailer, fans can get a glimpse of Swift singing her fan-favorite song “august,” while also discussing the process of creating the album. “There’s something about the complete and total uncertainty of life,” she said. “If we’re going to have to recalibrate everything, we should start with what we love the most first.”
“It’s an album that allows you to feel your feelings, and it’s a product of isolation,” she continued, talking to Dessner. “This could’ve been a time where I absolutely lost my mind, and instead I think, you know, this album was like a real flotation device for both of us.”
