How to Watch Taylor Swift's "folklore" Concert Film

folklore: the long pond studio sessions was filmed in upstate New York in September.

Back in July, Taylor Swift shook the music world by surprise-dropping her eighth album, folklore.

Released less than a year after its predecessor, the pop sugar rush Lover, folklore marked a stark shift for Swift by implementing a quieter, folksier sound. To pull it off, she collaborated with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, The National's Aaron Dessner, and her go-to producer Jack Antonoff—all of whom will be featured in a new concert film called folklore: the long pond studio sessions, premiering tonight on Disney Plus.

King Princess Channels Her "PAIN" Into a Glossy Disco-Pop Banger

"PAIN" is the latest single from the singer.

If an impending second lockdown has you feeling lonelier than normal, King Princess has released an anthem just for you.

"PAIN" is the latest single from the pop starlet, who seems to be wrapping up a follow-up to her 2019 debut record, Cheap Queen. Co-written alongside Nick Long, Shawn Everett, and Tobias Jesso Jr., the piano-driven tune sees King Princess—real name Mikaela Straus—reckoning with an unfortunate pattern of heartbreak time and time again: "You and I just get along / I wonder how I'll f*ck it up," she sings, as if her misdeeds in the relationship are inevitable.

Kéren

"Over the time this album was written, I was in a process that some would call an 'awakening,'" says Kéren of her new album, In Form.

"I began to see my facades and masks of personality, the caricature I'd created for myself, my defense mechanisms and patterns, and went into deep inquiry of Self. I began my healing journey," she says. "This required some deep shedding as parts of myself were transforming."

Written over a span of five years, the songs on In Form are about change and evolution—depicting what Instagram influencer and creator Gabi Abrão summarizes with her oft-reproduced quote, "I am constantly shapeshifting, adapting, and evolving."

3OH!3 and 100 Gecs' "LONELY MACHINE" Explores the Millennial/Gen-Z Divide

100 Gecs have become the darlings of post-genre trashcore for digital natives, and their iconic, ear-splitting "Money Machine" is the closest thing we have to today's "Don't Trust Me."

30H13 and 100 Gecs

In one of the year's most uncalled-for collaborations, 30H!3 has returned to accompany 100 Gecs on a new song.

The song is everything you would expect from these bands' combined efforts. It's abrasive, excessive, grating, and obnoxious. It features some aggressive lyrics and flickers of vintage 200s emo-tronica from 3OH!3. It also features some absurdly auto-tuned, extremely confessional lyrics from Laura Les that are sure to resonate with anyone who grew up using the Internet.

The song marks 3OH!3's first musical return in four years. The group achieved astronomical fame in the 2000s thanks to their song "Don't Trust Me," a staple of teen karaoke parties and bar mitzvahs in the aughts.
