This announcement comes as a massive shock considering she only released her album Folklore in July.

She offered fans an explanation, 'To put it plainly, we just couldn’t stop writing songs.'

'To try and put it more poetically, it feels like we were standing on the edge of the folklorian woods and had a choice: to turn and go back or to travel further into the forest of this music.'

'We chose to wander deeper in. I’ve never done this before.'

'In the past I’ve always treated albums as one-off eras and moved onto planning the next one after an album was released.'

'There was something different with folklore,' Taylor wrote.

'In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning.'

'I loved the escapism I found in these imaginary/not imaginary tales.'

'I loved the ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives.'

She added, 'So I just kept writing them.'
