Taylor Swift has graced us with not one but two albums this year, and her most recent releases, Evermore is the ending we needed in 2020. As in Swift fashion, the new album, a sister album to Folklore, has tons of Easter eggs and we’re here to uncover them. In fact, Swift actually started dropping hint weeks leading up to its release. Here are the Easter eggs we found. Did you pick up on them?

“Not a Lot Going on at the Moment”

Anytime Swift says there’s “not a lot going on at the moment”, we know that isn’t true. She said the exact phrase prior to the release of Folklore in April and the phrase dates back to her music video for “22”, where she wore a shirt with the words on it.

Her Grandmother “Marjorie” 

The 13th track of Folklore is “Epiphany” which pays tribute to Swift’s grandfather. Evermore brings things full circle and pays tribute to her grandmother, Marjorie with the 13th track on Evermore.

A “Willow” Tree

In the photo below, you can see a framed photo of a willow tree, which happens to be a hint to Evermore’s lead single “Willow”. The photo below the willow is made up of ivy leaves, which is for Track No. 10 on the album, “Ivy”. In December, Swift referenced “Willow” when she tweeted her response to Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2020 list. She wrote that she was so excited that she thew herself “to the base of a willow tree by a reflection pool at midnight”.

“Tis the Damn Season”

Just 24 hours before Swift announced Evermore, she made a reference to “Tis the Damn Season” on her Instagram story. When talking about an outfit from her Entertainment Weekly cover story she said, “This outfit really screams ‘TIS THE DAMN SEASON.” 

Evermore is a Birthday Present

Evermore was released during Swift’s birthday month and the original versions of Folklore and Evermore had 15 and 16 songs, which adds up to 31. Taylor Swift just so happened to have turned 31 on December 13, 2020.
