The last time Taylor Swift had a surprise announcement for her fans, it was that she was releasing an entire album — “Folklore” — within the next 24 hours. Her latest announcement is almost as much of a surprise: she’s releasing a concert film at midnight on Wednesday.

“Well it’s 11/24 and 24-11=13 so I’ve got an announcement. You haven’t seen this film before,” Swift wrote on social media Tuesday morning, referencing both a lyric from the song “Exile” on “Folklore” as well as her “lucky number” 13, according to Variety.

“Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions” will stream exclusively Disney Plus, and will drop at midnight PST on Wednesday, according to a press release from Disney.

The concert film was directed by Swift herself and was filmed in upstate New York in September, according to the press release. Also appearing in the film will be Swift’s collaborators on “Folklore” — Aaron Dessner (The National), Jack Antonoff (Bleachers), and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver).

Swift will perform all 17 songs from “Folklore” in the order in which they appear on the album, and will also discuss “stories and secrets” behind each of the songs, according to the press release.

“‘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,” Swift said in a recorded message that aired on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday. “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.”

Since its surprise release in July, “Folklore” became the first album in 2020 to sell over 1 million copies, according to Entertainment Weekly. Swift also took three awards at the American Music Awards on Sunday, including artist of the year for the third year in a row.

During a video acceptance speech at the AMAs, Swift revealed that she is in the middle of rerecording her old music, so fans will likely have more surprise announcements from her in the future.
