Taylor Swift released Folklore, her eighth studio album, after just a simple post from her. She revealed this had been recorded in the coronavirus lockdown, with some help from her partner in writing the music. But when is the new concert documentary Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions available to stream on Disney Plus?
Taylor Swift’s new concert documentary folklore: the long pond studio sessions, was filmed in upstate New York in September 2020.
The album, folklore, had been released far earlier in the year, on July 24, 2020.
Speaking about the album in a lengthy Instagram post at the time of its release, Taylor 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; @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).
“Engineered by Laura Sisk and Jon Low, mixed by Serban Ghenea & Jon Low. The album photos were shot by the amazing @bethgarrabrant.”
Other than her musical heroes, Swift also speaks out about why she feels this is the moment for new music.
She added: “Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the ‘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. Love you guys so much”
The music was recorded in the lockdown, however, things had eased by the time of the sessions, and a group of musicians who had never been in the room together before were able to meet.
Disney Plus released the following synopsis for the concert documentary: “Taylor, accompanied by co-producers Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff along with a guest appearance by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), performs each song in order of her critically adored, five-star album, ‘folklore’ and for the very first time, reveals the stories and secrets behind all 17 songs.”
After the concert documentary was announced, Taylor also revealed some secrets about the team behind the album, especially the mysterious William Bowery.
In her announcement Instagram post, he was the only person without a handle or Instagram account, and soon it became clear this was her partner, British actor Joe Alwyn.
Speaking in the documentary, she said: “[There has been] a lot of discussion about William Bowery and his identity.
“William Bowery is Joe, as we know.
“Joe plays piano beautifully and he’s always just playing and making things up and kind of creating things.”
According to Taylor, Joe wrote the piano music for the song Exile and originally sang the duet, before this was recorded by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.
Taylor added: “He was just singing it the way that the whole first verse is and so I was entranced and asked if we could keep writing that one.
“It was pretty obvious that it should be a duet because he’s got such a low voice and it sounded really good sung down there.”
