Taylor Swift announces surprise album that will be released tonight

Taylor Swift has taken to social media to announce a brand new album.

The 'Shake It Off' star broke the news of her 8th studio album to her fans who are now in a frenzy with this sudden revelation! 

The new album titled 'folklore' contains 16 songs and will be released at midnight.

In her announcement Swift gave more detail on what fans can expect from this new collection of songs.

She said: "Most of the things I had planned this summer didn't end up happening, but there is something I hadn't planned on that DID happen. And that thing is my 8th studio album, folklore, Surprise! Tonight at midnight I'll be releasing my entire brand new album of songs. I've poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into.

"I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; Aaron Dessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), Bon Iver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and Jack Antonoff (who is basically musical family at this point). Engineered by Laura Sisk and Jon Low, mixed by Serban Ghenea & Jon Low.

"The album photos were shot by the amazing Beth Garrabrant. Before this 'perfect' time, but the times we're living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That's the side of uncertainty I can get on board with."
