In a video released on Thursday (March 11), Taylor Swift revealed that she will be bringing some friends along for Sunday night’s (March 14) 63rd annual Grammy Awards performance. “The one thing I can tell you about my Grammy performance that isn’t highly confidential is that my Grammy performance includes my collaborators, Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff,” Swift said in the clip.
“Which is really exciting because this has been an adventure that the three of us have gone on since the very beginning of quarantine and lockdown,” she continued. “And you know, we’ve only gotten to be together in the same room once. And so, this is really awesome to get to be together with them again.”
The singer — who is nominated for six awards on Sunday, including album of the year — said the trio have been quarantining in the same house for the past week, during which they’ve been tested every day. “So it’s just really exciting, honestly, to play music with your collaborators,” Swift added. “That’s something that I will never, ever take for granted again.
Swift shared a snap with her Folklore gang on her Instagram Story on Thursday, in which she is chilling in the living room with producers Antonoff and Dessner, as well as engineers Laura Sisk and Johnathan Low with the caption “folklorian family photo.” Before Sunday night, the only other time Swift had been in a room to perform the songs from the album with Antonoff and Dessner was when they shot the Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions concert film.
