Taylor Swift's New Album Is Classified as 'Alternative,' Her First in That Genre!

Taylor Swift has moved on to a new genre with her eighth studio album, Folklore!

iTunes has the album officially categorized as an “Alternative” album, marking her first in the genre. Taylor has previously released four country albums and three pop albums.

Taylor will seemingly be submitting the album in the Best Alternative Music Album category at the 2021 Grammy Awards. The pop genre has separate categories for “Best Pop Solo Performance” and “Best Pop Vocal Album” while the alternative genre only has the album category.

The surprise album has 16 songs on the standard edition for a running time of 1 hour and 3 minutes. Five of the songs have explicit warnings on them.

Taylor has previously won the Album of the Year award at the Grammys twice. Do you think she can do it again with Folklore?!
