Taylor Swift is having quite the year. She just won artist of the year at AMA’s, she’s scoring several more Grammy nominations, plus just debuted a concert film “folklore: the long pond studio sessions”.

Taylor Swift continues to reinvent herself, even during quarantine. Swift admits that being able to create helped her during the downtime. It fostered a sense of warmth and coziness, but she’s always glad she has one thing to fall back on.

“The one thing that I knew I needed to keep me afloat was music and I’m really grateful that I had that,” Swift tells GMA. “[I’m] really grateful that the fans loved it in the way that they did and saw where I was coming from and I think they let their imaginations run wild with these stories too which made me really happy.”

Taylor Swift on ‘Folklore’

The cardigan-wearing sing-songwriter continues to say that she spent her time during quarantine recording this film that’s an inside look at her album “folklore”. It also features clips of Swift generally talking about the impact and importance of the record-breaking album.

She directed the video and produced it with the help of The National’s Aaron Dessner who also appears in the film.

Taylor Swift also said making the documentary allowed her to record in the same room on the album as Dessner and Antonoff for the first time. “Obviously, we’re doing things a little bit differently this year because concerts aren’t happening,” Swift said on GMA. “So many times Jack and Aaron and I had said to each other, ‘Wouldn’t it be so amazing if we could get in a room and perform these songs together and kind of feel that connection to the music in a live sense. And, provide a way to, in a way, do a concert for the fans. We figured out a way to do it where we quarantined completely. …”
