Lover is the upcoming seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It is scheduled to be released on August 23, 2019. The album is Swift's first release under Republic Records. The lead single "Me!" featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco was released on April 26, 2019. The second single "You Need to Calm Down" was released on June 13, 2019. The title track was released as the third single on August 16, 2019. Lover features collaborations from Urie and the Dixie Chicks.

Contents Background

Speculation of the album started on February 24, 2019, when Swift posted a photo of seven palm trees to her Instagram account,[1] which she later confirmed was the day she finished the album,[2] and again on April 13, when Swift released a countdown on her official website, counting down to midnight on April 26.[3] At midnight, Swift released the album's lead single, "Me!" featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, along with its accompanying music video.[4] Swift told fans to look in the video carefully to find hints about the album title. Many fans pointed out that at one point in the video, a sign saying Lover was seen at the top of a building in the background.[5]

On June 13, 2019, Swift confirmed this speculation in a livestream on Instagram.[6] Swift also announced that the album's second single, "You Need to Calm Down", would be released the next day, June 14, followed by its music video three days later.[7] Furthermore, Swift announced that the numbers of the release date (eight, two, and three) add up to 13, Swift's favorite number.[7] In the livestream, she described the album as a romantic one, stating that it was "not just simply thematically, like it's all love songs or something. The idea of something being romantic, it doesn't have to be a happy song. You can find romance in loneliness or sadness or going through things in your life... it just looks at those things through a romantic gaze."[6]

As of July 2019[update], Lover is the most pre-saved album by a female artist in its first day on Apple Music, totaling more than 178,600 pre-adds worldwide on the platform.[8][9] Lover also holds the record for most pre-added pop album in its first day worldwide, also on Apple Music.[10]

On August 16, 2019, Swift announced the track listing of the album on her social media.[11]

Artwork and packaging

The album cover photo was shot by 24-year old Valheria Rocha, a Colombian artist.[12]

There will be four deluxe versions of the album, all with different bonus content, which will be available at Target in the US, and on her official website globally upon album release. Some of the content will include a lyric book, a CD of the standard album, a poster, scans of Swift's old diary entries,[13] photos, and a blank journal, as well as two bonus audio memos.[14][15]


A few weeks before the expected release of the album, Swift invited select group of fans to private listening parties called Secret Sessions, a tradition beginning with the album 1989 in 2014. Secret Sessions were held in London,[16] Nashville,[17] and Los Angeles.[18]

Swift partnered with Amazon in the lead-up to the release, with Amazon featuring Lover designs on some of their cardboard delivery boxes.[19]


The song "Me!" featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco serves as the album's lead single. It was released along with its accompanying music video on April 26, 2019.[4] The lyric video was released on May 1. The song broke several records, including the biggest single-week jump on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in its history.[20] It peaked at number two in the United States and in Canada,[20] while it debuted and peaked at number 3 on the UK Singles Chart.[21]

The second single, "You Need to Calm Down", was announced during Swift's album release livestream on Instagram on June 13, 2019, and was released on June 14, along with the lyric video.[6] The accompanying music video, which was released on June 17,[22] had special appearances from a variety of guests, most of whom are part of the LGBTQ+ community, including Ellen DeGeneres and RuPaul.[9][23] It debuted and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

At the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, Swift announced that the title track will be released as the third single on August 16, 2019.[24][25][26] On August 15, 2019, Swift announced on her social media that the music video for the song will premiere during a live Q&A session on YouTube a day before the album release, on August 22, 2019.[27]

Promotional singles

"The Archer" was released as the album's first promotional single on July 23, 2019.[28] Swift explained it would not be a single and it was meant to showcase a side of the album unseen by fans with the two singles; therefore, the song would not receive an accompanying music video. A lyric video was released on YouTube on the day the track was released.[29] It debuted at #69 on the Billboard Hot 100 on the chart dated August 3, 2019.

Track listing

The standard album is set to have 18 tracks, more than any of her six previous studio albums. The Target deluxe editions are set to feature two songwriting audio memos from Swift.[6][30][31][32]
