Taylor Swift Reveals Three Songs on 'Folklore' Are Connected, Talks Easter Eggs

Taylor Swift is opening up about the Easter eggs on her new album Folklore and how three of the songs are connected.

The 30-year-old singer has said that she focused on storytelling for her eighth studio album, which is part of a completely new genre for her.

Taylor revealed some interesting details while chatting with fans on the live chat of her “Cardigan” video premiere on YouTube.

“One thing I did purposely on this album was put the Easter eggs in the lyrics, more than just the videos. I created character arcs and recurring themes that map out who is singing about who,” Taylor said.

She added, “For example there’s a collection of 3 songs I refer to as The Teenage Love Triangle. These 3 songs explore a love triangle from all 3 people’s perspectives at different times in their lives.”

The general consensus is that “Betty” is told from James’ point of view, “Cardigan” is told from Betty’s point of view, and “August” is told from Inez’s point of view. This has not yet been confirmed by Taylor.

There is even a theory that Taylor named those three characters after the children of one of her celeb BFFs, though this isn’t confirmed.
