You Have To Check Out These 8 Indian Instagram Singers Covering Songs From Taylor Swift’s New Album, Folklore

So, 5 days ago on 24 July, Taylor Swift shook us all by dropping a total surprise album called Folklore. Made entirely during lockdown, this album has been widely appreciated by both fans and critics. The album has a dreamy vibe, with many of the folksy, indie songs being reminiscent of the old Taylor Swift’s guitar strumming numbers. Folklore consists of 16 songs, each of them different from the previous one and staying true to Swift’s storytelling lyrics. However, this album has been reviewed to be Swift’s best one yet, with lyrics that explore vivid, innovative stories and music that is both sing-able and enjoyable to all ages. Folklore may have been produced during Swift’s lockdown period of heightened creativity, but it also has inspired upcoming artists to test their musical skills.

More specifically, a ton of Instagram singers have covered Swift’s songs beautifully and we simply had to share them for all of you to see. Check out these Indian musicians who covered their favourite songs from Folklore:

“To kiss in cars and downtown bars was all we needed” My favourite song from the new surprise album! It’s a little messy since I picked up the guitar after months! But I tried.

Did an impromptu cover of my two favourite verses from the first single off of Taylor Swiftโ€™s new album โค๏ธ Anyone who knows me will know that I openly admit I have not been a huge fan of Taylor Swift for the past few years, but was a huge fan of her during her early days- to the point where she influences some of the music I write today, and I didnโ€™t even realise it. The reason I liked this album so much is because it reminded me of why I liked Taylor in the first place- her songwriting and tone of voice!! Iโ€™ve been waiting for an album like this from her for ages and am so happy we finally got one โค๏ธ On another note, I feel this song hard and am currently vibing to it 24×7, so let me know in the comments if you want me to cover more of it!! Also leave a comment of any other song youโ€™d want me to cover from her album because honestly, the whole thing is on repeat ๐Ÿ˜ญ . . . . #singersongwriters #singersongwritersofinstagram #singersongwriter #taylorswiftcover #taylorswift #folklore #cardigan #piano #cover #coversongs #coversong #popsong #popartist #popsinger #popmusician #indiemusic #rnbartist #rnbmusician #singing #vocals #singer #singers #singingcover #singersofinstagram #singers๐ŸŽค #singing๐ŸŽค #singingvideo #explore #explorepage

There’s so much talent on Instagram! And clearly, so many people who love cardigan from all the songs on Folklore. More power to these girls who, clearly, have been listening to T Swift for years. In the current dark times of the world, it’s important to have music to keep us going. If you feel creative, don’t wait — just pick up a guitar or play a background tune, and sing your heart out! What’s the worst that could happen? ๐Ÿ™‚
