Taylor Swift is bringing an “intimate” concert film for her latest album, “Folklore,” exclusively to Disney+ just in time for Thanksgiving. Swift along with Aaron Dessner (The National), Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) created an album that crossed genres, a musical journey that allows us to cry and laugh, and during these trying times, makes us feel like we’re not quite so alone. They recorded folklore thousands of miles apart from each other and had never been in the same room together until they filmed the folklore: the long pond studio sessions special.
