Folklore es más complejo que eso y no evoca la imagen de Swift desplomado sobre una guitarra para un set acústico. Con los productores Aaron Dessner (de la banda independiente The National) y Jack Antonoff (cantante de rock convertido en susurrador de estrellas del pop), ella nada a través de una intrincada instrumentación clásica y folk organizada en gran parte por la lógica cuadriculada de la música electrónica. Los inquietantes cantantes de radio de rock de los noventa como Natalie Merchant y Sarah McLachlan parecen guiar las elecciones de Swift, al igual que contemporáneos como Lana Del Rey y Lorde. El efecto general es inquietante, desgarrador y nostálgico.

Los ominosos acordes, los delicados ritmos y los difusos loops instrumentales de Dessner han felicitado en el pasado a cantantes como Matt Berninger de The National, cuya poesía surrealista documenta sentimientos inarticulados.

Taylor Swift, a Pop Star Done With Pop

On “Folklore,” a quarantine album made largely with Aaron Dessner from the National, she swerves away from her last few releases, embracing atmospheric rock – and other characters’ points of view. The song that catapulted Taylor Swift from too-cool-for-country phenom to the-world-is-not-enough pop supernova was “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” the debut single from her fourth album, “Red,” in 2012.

Ahora, ocho años después, Swift ha hecho, bueno, uno de esos discos ella misma, o al menos algo parecido. “Folklore”, su octavo álbum alternativamente relajante y sensiblero, pensativo y sofocante, es un salto definitivo que se aleja de la última década del pop de gran carpa de Swift de alto brillo, estilo fluido y emocionalmente astuto. Hecho desde cero en la era de la cuarentena, “Folklore” fue grabado en su casa en Los Ángeles, y escrito y producido en colaboración remota en gran parte con Aaron Dessner (del Nacional) y su extractor emocional favorito, Jack Antonoff.

Taylor Swift

In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result, a collection of songs and stories that flowed like a stream of consciousness. Picking up a pen was my way of escaping into fantasy, history, and memory. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve.

Seven – Taylor Swift

[Verse 1]

Please picture me in the trees
I hit my peak at seven
Feet in the swing over the creek
I was too scared to jump in
But I, I was high in the sky
With Pennsylvania under me
Are there still beautiful things?

[Chorus]

Sweet tea in the summer
Cross your heart, won’t tell no other
And though I can’t recall your face
I still got love for you
Your braids like a pattern
Love you to the Moon and to Saturn
Passed down like folk songs
The love lasts so long

[Verse 2]

And I’ve been meaning to tell you
I think your house is haunted
Your dad is always mad and that must be why
And I think you should come live with me
And we can be pirates
Then you won’t have to cry
Or hide in the closet
And just like a folk song
Our love will be passed on

[Bridge]

Please picture me in the weeds
Before I learned civility
I used to scream ferociously
Any time I wanted
I, I

[Chorus]

Sweet tea in the summer
Cross my heart, won’t tell no other
And though I can’t recall your face
I still got love for you
Pack your dolls and a sweater
We’ll move to India forever
Passed down like folk songs
Our love lasts so long
