Last week, Taylor Swift surprised fans with the release of Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions, a stripped-back, raw performance of her latest album, Folklore. The performance was released globally on Disney+ on November 25, but was not available to watch in the UAE.
That is until Friday, December 4, when it will be available to watch on OSN Streaming.
Folklore is, as the name suggests, a folky departure from the country and pop incarnations of Swift, and the log cabin setting of Long Pond Studio befits the chilled release.
Watch Taylor Swift and Bon Iver perform 'Exile' here:
Hot off her six Grammy Award nominations last week, fans can watch as Swift is joined by Aaron Dessner of The National rock band, Jack Antonoff who is part of the indie bands Bleachers and Fun, and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for the performance session. Although they created and released the record together during global lockdowns, the Long Pond session is the first time Swift, Dessner and Antonoff had been together in the same room.
During the film, Swift performs each Folklore song in album order, and discusses the 17 tracks and the stories behind them.
'Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions' is available to stream from Friday, December 4; OSN Streaming starts at $9.50 per month
