Taylor Swift has dropped off “Lover,” the title track of her forthcoming seventh studio album, out next week.
“Lover” sees the pop icon returning to her country roots. A slow-burning wedding jam that offers gentle guitar strumming and romantic lyrics, the fresh Swift track is a dramatic left-turn from her more bombastic Lover singles such as “Me!” and “You Need to Calm Down.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?” she sings. “With every guitar string scar on my hand / I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover.” The song was produced by Swift’s longtime collaborator Jack Antonoff, who also worked on her previously released song, “The Archer.”
According to Swift, a music video for the single will arrive next Thursday, the day before her album drops in full. In the meantime, check out the lyric video for “Lover” below:
