Before Taylor Swift released the album, fans took to social media to speculate a lot of different theories about her upcoming album.
Taylor’s fans think that Joe Alwyn has co-written the songs of the album with the singer. The singer surprised her fans on Thursday morning claiming she will be releasing her album at midnight.
She took to Instagram and said a lot of things that she did plan did not happen and things she did not plan did happen. Taylor explained that the thing that did happen is her eighth studio album, Folklore. She wrote “Surprise!” and announced she will be releasing the album at midnight. The singer explained that she has put all her whims, dreams, fears, and musings into the album.
And after she announced this, her fans will obviously go for a search to find clues about the album. We can count on Swifties when we need information about Taylor or her albums. With a little bit of research, some fans claimed that Joe will be a part of this album in a unique way.
The claims started from Taylor talking about the team who helped her make the music. “I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; @aarondessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), @boniver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and @jackantonoff (who is basically musical family at this point),” she shared online.
Fans immediately started to speculate that William Bowery is actually Joe Alwyn. He did not have an Instagram account which sort of convinced fans. A fan site was quick to notice that Taylor and Joe had their first met in Hotel Bowery in New York.
Taylor Describes ‘Cardigan’
Another fan gave us the information from Joe’s Wikipedia page that the actor is the great-grandson of William Alwyn. And again there was another clue which said that William spent much of his life as a composer, conductor, and music teacher.
This can be true since it will not be the first time Taylor has faked a songwriter’s name. She faked the name of her previous boyfriend, Calvin Harris while writing the song ‘This is What You Came For’. The singer used the pseudonym Nils Sjöberg to credit herself. Her then-boyfriend, Calvin confirmed in a tweet saying, “Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual.”
Taylor has already dropped her album Folklore. However, she has also released the music video of one of the songs in the album called, ‘Cardigan’. The singer assured fans that a medical inspector was present while shooting the video and everybody took the necessary precautions. She wrote, “The entire shoot was overseen by a medical inspector, everyone wore masks, stayed away from each other, and I even did my own hair, makeup, and styling.”
Taylor has already described the song’s meaning. She said it is about a lost romance and why young love is often fixed so permanently within our memories. The singer continues about the song that it describes why love leaves such a mark.
Swift’s new album consists of 16 songs on the standard edition, but as she shared on Thursday, the “physical deluxe editions” will have a bonus track called “The Lakes.”
Other songs on the album bear titles “The 1” and “This Is Me Trying” as well as “Illicit Affairs” and “My Tears Ricochet.”
