The film – which was directed by Swift and filmed at Long Pond Studio, New York – was announced on Tuesday (November 24, 2020) and will debut on the streamer just one day later, a short trailer for the project reveals.
It sees Swift reunite with The National’s Aaron Dessner – who owns the studio – and her other co-producer, Jack Antonoff, to perform each song off Folklore and share the stories behind the tracks on the album.
Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who appears on the track Exile, will also make a special guest appearance.
“It’s an album that allows you to feel your feelings, and it’s a product of isolation,” Swift tells Dessner of Folklore in the trailer. “This could’ve been a time where I absolutely lost my mind, and instead, I think this album was a real flotation device for both of us.”
The film marks the first time that Swift, Dessner, and Antonoff have performed Folklore, which she surprise-released amid the pandemic, together.
