Taylor Swift Drops Studio Session Video for “exile” featuring Bon Iver from Documentary Film “folklore: the long pond studio sessions”
- American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift's documentary film “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions” is out November 25 via Disney+.
The film draws an inside look at the writing process of her eighth studio album “Folklore”, which was released back in July.
"Folklore was an album that was made completely in isolation, which means that Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff and I never saw each other while we were collaborating and creating the album," Taylor Swift said. "But we got together at Long Pond studio and for the very first time got to create this music together, play through it, talk through it."
The film was directed by Taylor Swift herself, co-staring Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff and Justin Vernon.
“There's something about the complete and total uncertainty of life,” Taylor Swift says. “If we're going to have to recalibrate everything, we should start with what we love the most first. Everybody needed a good cry, as well as us.”
From the film, she dropped a video for “exile”, featuring Bon Iver. “exile” was written by Justin Vernon, William Bowery and Taylor Swift.
She said of the song, “'exile' is a song that was written about miscommunications in relationships, and in the case of this song, I imagined that the miscommunications ended the relationship. They led to the demise of this love affair, and now these two people are seeing each other out for the first time, and they keep miscommunicating with each other. They can't quite get on the same page, they never were able to. And even in their end, even after they've broken up, they're still not hearing each other. So we imagined the beginning would be his side of the story, the second verse her side of the story, and the end would be the story of them talking over each other and not hearing each other. We're really stoked about how it turned out because it really does seem to be about the tragedy of two people, of two ships passing in the night.”
