Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Swift took the opportunity to debunk the theory. She also admitted to making a mistake.
“OK, well, this takes a bit of explanation,” she explained. “I tend to be sort of annoyingly secret-agenty about dropping clues and hints and Easter eggs and it’s very annoying but it’s fun for fans and it’s fun for me because they like to pick up on things. And they’ll notice lots of things in music videos or photos or whatever, and then sometimes, I take it too far, and I make a mistake.”
In July, Swift surprised fans after announcing she was releasing her unanticipated album, folklore. Last week, Swift fans would again have to pick their jaw off the floor when she revealed the album, evermore album would drop at midnight on Dec 11.
Fans Find Surprise Word in Taylor Swift’s folklore Cover
Given Swift’s penchant to hide Easter eggs for new projects in her work, many fans noticed something on the folklore cover that led them to speculate that evermore was the second in a trio of albums.
Kimmel also asked the singer how fans could see the word “woodvale” on a tree in the folklore album art.
“When I was making Folklore, the album that came out back in July, I was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management. I didn’t tell anybody the album title until right before it came out,” Swift explained. “And so I came up with a fake codename that had the same amount of letters as folklore, chose a random name, chose ‘woodvale.’ Wanted to see how it would look on the album covers, mocked them up, and then decided, I don’t actually want to have a title on the album covers and we forgot to take the fake codename off of one of them.”
