Watch Trailer HERE

Taylor Swift, Aaron Dessner (The National), Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) created an album that crossed genres — a musical journey that allows us to cry and laugh, and during these trying times, makes us feel like we’re not quite so alone. They recorded “folklore” thousands of miles apart from each other and had never been in the same room together…

…until now

“folklore: the long pond studio sessions” was filmed in upstate New York in September 2020 and will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on Wednesday, November 25, at 12:01AM PT. Taylor, accompanied by co-producers Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff along with a guest appearance by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), performs each song in order of her critically adored, five star album, “folklore” and for the very first time, reveals the stories and secrets behind all 17 songs.

“folklore: the long pond studio sessions” was directed by Taylor Swift and filmed on 6 x Lumix S1H mirrorless cameras with Leica lenses embedded in the studio, along with a one Alexa LF with an Angenieux 24-290 on a Furio robotic camera with 30+ feet of curved track.

ANDREW WATT WINS GRAMMY FOR PRODUCER OF THE YEAR

MULTI-PLATINUM PRODUCER ANDREW WATT SCORES FIRST GRAMMY WIN FOR PRODUCER OF THE YEAR AT THE 63rd ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS.

PRODUCER CREDITS IN 2020 INCLUDE DUA LIPA’S FUTURE NOSTALGIA, WHICH TOOK HOME BEST POP VOCAL ALBUM, AND POST MALONE’S HOLLYWOOD BLEEDING, NOMINATED FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR.

Critically acclaimed, award-winning music producer Andrew Watt took home the award for Producer of the Year at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards.  This marks the first official Grammy win for the multi-platinum selling hit-maker, who worked on some of 2020’s biggest music releases including; Ozzy Osbourne’s Ordinary Man, Miley Cyrus Plastic Hearts, both of which he executive-produced, Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, which tonight took home the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album, and Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, nominated for Album of the Year.

Watt’s work has continued to dominate the charts. He helped steer the hit “Midnight Sky” to become Miley’s 14th Top 20 US hit and Plastic Hearts to 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Rock Charts. And he started 2021 off with a bang with his recent work on Justin Bieber’s smash hit “Anyone,” which helped catapult the single to the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, making it Bieber’s 22nd career top 10 in the US.  Watt also produced Bieber’s latest release “Hold On” from his highly anticipated upcoming album Justice.

About Andrew Watt

ANDREW WATT is music-industry royalty, having collaborated with a wide variety of A-list acts including Justin Bieber, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Mick Jagger, Selena Gomez, Smokey Robinson, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith, Juice Wrld, Halsey, Nile Rodgers, Ellie Goulding, Khalid, Slash, The Chainsmokers, Blink 182, Bebe Rexha, Tom Morello, Florida Georgia Line, Duff McKagan, 5 Seconds of Summer, Taylor Hawkins and Chad Smith to name a few. The record producer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s production credits include Cardi B.’s groundbreaking 2019 album Invasion of Privacy, which took home the Best Rap Album Grammy Award in 2019, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s smash global hit “Senorita,” as well as Lana Del Rey’s “Doin Time,” which topped the Billboard charts at #1. His genre-transcending talent as a producer entices artists of all kinds but it is his laid-back charm that keeps them coming back – as friends, and as collaborators. His versatility as a songwriter, producer and all-around musician have made him a bona-fide hit-maker reminiscent of legends way beyond his time.

Alessia Cara × JUNO

Alessia Cara secures Album of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year and the 2020 JUNO Awards

Canadian singer/songwriter Alessia Cara scores big at the 49th JUNO Awards for her album, The Pains of Growing. Alessia won three awards out of the six nominations she received for Album of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year. In fact, Alessia is the first female artist in seven years to win Album of the Year and the first female artist to win Songwriter of the Year in six years.

Initially, Alessia planned to host the event before it’s cancellation due to coronavirus. But, the virtual ceremony showcased and celebrated many amazing artists; Alessia was one of the performers at the online awards show and sang her new song “Rooting For You.”

About Alessia Cara:

2018’s “Best New Artist” Grammy Award Winning Canadian singer/songwriter and Def Jam Recordings artist Alessia Cara emerged onto the music scene in 2015 with her first release, “Here,” a global anthem that grabbed the world’s attention when it garnered over 500,000 streams on Soundcloud in its first week. “Here” went on to become Spotify’s Most Viral Song of 2015, selling over 3 million copies. Four Pink Walls, soon followed, leading to the release of her RIAA platinum debut album Know-It-All. Alessia’s multi-platinum #1 hit single of 2016, “Scars to Your Beautiful,” was her gut-wrenching take on female identity, on body image and on deleterious behaviors in the name of beauty. “Stay” her #1 hit with Zedd sold over 2 million copies and received Song Of The Summer raves. Also in 2016, Alessia lent her voice to “How Far I’ll Go,” penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda, official song for Disney’s animated film Moana. The 4x-platinum “1-800-273-8255,” her historic collaboration with fellow Def Jam artist Logic, was one of 2017’s landmark singles with over 9 billion streams worldwide, contributing to her being named the most-streamed new female artist of 2017. “Growing Pains,” was the prelude to Alessia’s second album, her critically acclaimed The Pains of Growing.

A JUNO award winner for 2016 Breakthrough Artist of the Year in her native Canada, Alessia went on to receive the “Rule Breaker” honor at the Billboard Women in Music annual event. She won MTV VMAs in 2017 for Best Electronic Dance Video and Best Fight Against The System (for her multi-platinum #1 Billboard Pop Song “Scars To Your Beautiful,” which she and Logic performed with Khalid as the climactic moment of that year’s Grammy broadcast). Alessia also won back-to-back ASCAP Pop Awards for “Stay” and “Scars To Your Beautiful”; along with Dance Song of the Year at the iHeart Radio Music Awards. She has earned nominations for Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist at the 2017 American Music Awards, the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist, the Billboard Music Award for Top New Artist, the BET Award for Best New Artist, the BBC Award for Song of The Year, and many other top honors.
