STORY OF SONG
“mirrorball” is the sixth track from American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift and her eighth studio album “folklore”, which was released earlier this year in July 2020. Produced and written by Taylor Swift and singer, songwriter and producer Jack Antonoff, “mirrorball” is a folk-tinged dreamy pop song featuring a pedal steel and a twangy guitar.
