Lover, Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Reputation, is out now.
Swift announced her seventh studio album back in April with the release of its first single, “Me!” featuring Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie. It was later followed by “You Need to Calm Down,” “The Archer” and its title track, which arrived last week.
The record is the singer’s longest LP to date, collecting a total of 18 tracks. It was mainly produced by Jack Antonoff, who’s worked with the likes of Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Grimes. Annie Clark (aka St Vincent) is also credited on the song, “Cruel Summer.”
During a YouTube live stream prior to the release of Lover, Swift described her newest record as “aesthetically very daytime, very sunlit fields.” “I really just pictured this and wrote music from a perspective of a much, more open, just free, romantic, whimsical place,” she said.
Swift also shared a romantic visual for its title track, which she directed alongside Drew Kirsch. The clip is chock-full of references to the singer’s older songs like “Teardrops on My Guitar,” “Our Song” and “King of My Heart.” Watch it below and see if you can spot all the Easter eggs:
