Taylor Swift Responds to 'Woodvale' Album Rumors, Shoots Down Fan Theory

Taylor Swift is explaining why the word “Woodvale” appears on one of her album covers and revealed that the word is NOT the title of an upcoming album.

After the release of Taylor‘s ninth studio album Evermore, fans came up with the theory that a third pandemic album titled Woodvale would be released. During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday (December 14), she shot down the theory.

“Well, this takes a bit of explanation. I tend to be sort of annoyingly secret-agenty about dropping clues and hints and Easter eggs. It’s very annoying, but it’s fun for fans and it’s fun for me because they like to pick up on things. And they’ll notice lots of things in music videos and photos or whatever. Sometimes I take it too far and make a mistake,” Taylor said.

The singer then explained what actually happened and how “Woodvale” ended up on that photo.

Taylor continued, “Basically, when I was making Folklore, the album that came out back in July, I was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management. I didn’t tell anyone the album title until right before it came out. I came up with a fake code name that had the same amount of letters as Folklore. Chose a random name. Chose Woodvale. Wanted to see how it would look on the album covers, mocked them up, and then decided I don’t actually want to have a title on the album covers. And we forgot to take the fake code name off of one of them.”

Taylor added, “Evermore had a code name. It was November. We remembered to take it off the mock-ups of the album covers before we released it this time. We learned our lesson.”

When Jimmy suggested a title for another album, Taylor replied, “I’m so tired. I’m so exhausted. I’ve tired myself out. I have nothing left.”
