EDITORS’ NOTES

The drama surrounding Taylor’s love life has always been at the center of her music, but with “Lover,” the swooning, swaying new single from her forthcoming album of the same name, we get something different: She’s...happy, so happy she wants to belt it from the rooftops: “Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?/With every guitar string scar on my hand/I take this magnetic force of a man/To be my lover.” The serenade is yet another collaboration with songwriter and Lord of Love Songs Jack Antonoff, and it appears to be a tribute to Swift’s boyfriend of three years, Joe Alwyn. It follows the propulsive retro ballad “The Archer,” stomping Pride anthem “You Need to Calm Down,” and self-love duet “ME!” (featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco). Pre-add Lover now and when it’s released on August 23, the entire album will be added to your library instantly.

People need to chill

Why can’t people just take the music at face value? They’re light hearted, catchy tunes, she doesn’t need to have super deep soul crushing lyrics to make a good album. I don’t think the intention of this album is supposed to be anything more than being happy with yourself, having fun, more love-less hate, and being sort of cheeky. Just go with it! Stop expecting everything to be profound lol.

boring and childish

can we just go back to the period from her debut to 1989 when her music was actually good? ever since look what you made me do her music has just been ugly, and now this is somehow even worse than reputation. both me! and you need to calm down sound like they were written for a disney movie or kidz bop. taylor, please just make good music and stop relying on namepower and extravagant music videos for chart success. sincerely, all of us
