She has performed dozens of her songs over more than three hours onstage at the rugby arena.

And she told her tens of thousands of ecstatic fans the inspiration behind her eighth album, Folklore, as she stood in a wooden cabin.

Swift credited Scotland’s history and picturesque landscapes with getting her creative juices flowing for the 2020 record.

She said: “Whenever I see all the beautiful videos of Scotland of all the castles and the moss and the woods and all the green, I always think about Folklore. I think that might have been part of my imaginary fantasy.

“I started writing this album two days into the pandemic, so I just created an imaginary world that I lived in instead of my reality, which was so much TV, so much white wine.

“That was my actual reality, so I thought I’m gonna create a fake imaginary land where I live and I’m gonna call it Folklore, and I’m gonna escape into it.”

She added: “And in my imaginary world, I lived in a cabin sort of like this, weirdly shaped with terrible insulation now that I think about it.

“I would go to this beautiful foresty, mossy, natural world, which I now realise is probably just based on videos I’ve seen online of Scotland.”

Just moments earlier, Swift was bowled over when she spotted two of her fans getting engaged.

The Cruel Summer singer addressed the happy couple as she shared her delight.
