Taylor Swift is at it again. In late July this year, she surprised fans by revealing her new album "Folklore" the day before it was released. The pop star just announced an intimate concert movie of her new album, which was released November 25. The documentary film, titled "Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions," debuted on Disney+ Wednesday at 3:01 a.m. EST.
Swift shared the trailer for the film on social media, alluding to her lucky number 13, which has played as an Easter Egg in her previous albums. "Well it's 11/24 and 24-11 = 13 so I've got an announcement," she wrote. The film was directed by Swift, who performs every song from "Folklore" in order for the very first time and reveals anecdotes and stories from the 17 songs on the album.
It's pretty much the closest thing to being invited to one of the artist's "Secret Sessions," where Swift invites fans to preview the album in one of her homes.

What is 'Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions' about?
Though Swift collaborated with The National's Aaron Dessner, producer Jack Antonoff, and singer-songwriter Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) in separate locations due to the coronavirus pandemic, the album "Folklore" was recorded in Long Pond Studios in upstate New York where they were able to play through the album for the first time.
The trailer of the film shows Swift nestled in a barn with her collaborators singing raw versions of "Cardigan" and "August," as well as cuts to clips of her discussing creating the record-breaking album during a time of isolation. "This could have been a time when I absolutely lost my mind,” Swift says in the trailer. “Instead … this album was like a real floatation device.”
Fans can expect even more intimate moments throughout Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions. The film also comes at a time when Swift is rerecording her first six albums, after losing her master rights to music executive Scooter Braun and having her masters sold for a second time without her knowledge.
