When Taylor Swift’s surprise album Folklore blasted in atop the Signboard 200 chart with the most substantial week of the year for any album, she not just did it without the benefit of any pre-release promo, however also while taking a sonic left- turn away from pure pop and into a more alternative soundscape.

On the newest Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), the group speak about Swift’s epic chart tasks accomplished with Folklore and its single “Cardigan,” and hypothesizes on if the album would have achieved such excellent heights if it had really been a surprise-released standard pop effort. The Pop Customers also speak about on how Folklore may have brought in brand name-new fans to the Swift fold, thanks to her cooperations with alt-rock acts like Bon Iver and The National’s Aaron Dessner.

Swift has actually been picked 3 times, and won 2 times (for Courageous and 1989). Her last 2 albums, Lover and Reliability, didn’t make the cut.

In addition to all of the Swift chatter, the newest Pop Shop Podcast episode features an interview with singer-songwriter Alessia Cara. The Grammy Award-winner for best brand name-new artist joins the show to discuss her brand name-new charity album This Summer Season: Live off the Floor, why she’s contributing all her profits from the job to Save the Children, and how the live album puts an “psychological” brand name-new twist on her tunes.

You can continuously rely on a dynamic conversation about the most recent pop news, enjoyable chart statistics and stories, new music, and visitor interviews with music stars and folks from the world of pop.
