Taylor Swift Addresses Rumors of Potential New Album
After surprising fans with another new album just last week, Taylor Swift made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday, where she addressed the rumors that she's set to release a tenth album soon.
Rumors of a tenth album began soon after the release of Evermore after fans spotted the word "Woodvale" camouflaged in the background of artwork for Swift's Folklore album, with the photo immediately going viral online. After Swift described Evermore as a "sister record" to Folklore, it was speculated that "Woodvale" could serve as a potential "brother" to the two albums.
During her Monday interview with Kimmel, Swift admitted she is aware of the "Woodvale" Easter egg and told Kimmel it was an accident.
"Okay, well, this takes a bit of explanation. So I tend to be sort of annoyingly secret agent-y about dropping clues and hints and Easter eggs," Smith told Kimmel. "It's very annoying but it's fun for fans and it's fun for me because they like to pick up on things... and then, sometimes I take it too far and I make a mistake."
Swift explained that when she was making Folklore, which released in July, she "was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management" and so came up with a code name that had the same number of letters as Folklore, which was "Woodvale." She mocked up the name on album covers to see how it would look, she added, before deciding she didn't want to have an album title on the album cover. "And we forgot to take the fake code name off of one of them," she added.
"This album is like the third season of Lost," Kimmel joked. "People are finding clues where there aren't them."
Evermore had the code name "November," Swift added, "but we remembered to take it off all the mockups of the album covers, so we learned our lesson."
