NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Taylor Swift announced Thursday that her eighth studio album will be released at midnight ET. 

Swift made the announcement on Facebook and Twitter shortly after 8 a.m. ET.  

The pop star said the album, titled "folklore," will be "an entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into."

According to the post, the album will include 16 songs, one of which is a collaboration with indie folk band Bon Iver.

"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," Swift wrote. "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."
