" Swifties were absolutely thrilled to receive any form of new Swift music, but with all the hype leading up to the release date, fans were expecting a full album, not just a single". During an intimate Instagram Live session on Thursday (June 13), Taylor Swift spilled all the details surrounding her upcoming seventh album, which is titled - drumroll please - Lover.
The giddy aesthetic is a sharp departure from her last album, "reputation", which released in 2017.
Swift leaked the highly anticipated news - and her new rainbow-drenched cover art - on Twitter and Instagram posts and an Instagram Live chat on Thursday. "Not just simply thematic, like it's [not] all love songs. you can find some romance in loneliness or sadness, going through a conflict or dealing with things in your life".
"The music video [for it] doesn't come out for another couple days, because I wanted you to hear the song first", Swift explained, revealing that it will premiere Monday, June 17 on Good Morning America.
Swift said this album will have a "romantic" vibe to it.
As if that wasn't enough to get us all excited, Tay also revealed that she'll be dropping a brand spanking new single called "You Need to Calm Down" at midnight - that's around 2 pm AEST, FYI. "The video is very worth the wait".
"In the ME! music video there were a lot of foreshadowing clues."
The new single closely follows her collaboration with Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco on the song "ME!" "I think it just looks at these things with a very romantic gaze". The album will have four separate deluxe editions available at Target.
The ME! singer also announced that Stella McCartney will also be collaborating with this new era of music.
"August is the eighth month of the year, and 23, two plus three, add it all together. equals I'm obnoxious", Swift jokes.
While live, Swift mentioned that Lover is going to be a "really romantic" album.
