Folklore was seen by many as a tonal departure for Swift, away from the polished pop of 1989 and Lover and towards something more popular.
Swift recently began selling signed copies of Folklore on her online store for $ 25 each, prompting a resurgence in sales.
“Along with the signed CD, some lucky buyers of these items may even receive complimentary cat hair stuck inside the pages,” the singer joked on Twitter.
“Or the aromatic aroma of white wine that I occasionally spill while signing.”
