“ Okay, well, this takes a bit of explanation, So I tend to be sort of annoying secret agent-y about dropping clues and hints and Easter eggs,” Smith told Kimmel. “It’s very annoying but it’s fun for fans and it’s fun for me because they like to pick up on things…; and then, sometimes I take it too far and I make a mistake.”
The “Forbes celebrity” revealed that when she was making Folklore, which released in July, she” was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management” and hence thought of the same code name that has the same number of letters as Folklore, which was “Woodvale.” She mocked up the name on album covers to see how it would look, she added, before deciding she didn’t want to have an album title on the album cover. “ And we forgot to take the fake code name off of one of them,” she added.
Kimmel Jokingly told “ This album is like the third season of Lost, People are finding clues where there aren’t them.”
Evermore had the code name “November, she added, but we remembered to take it off all the mockups of the album cover, so we learned our lesson,”
