Taylor Swift has finally announced her seventh studio album, Lover!
After releasing the album’s lead single ME! in April, Taylor held an Instagram live on Thursday (June 13) to announce the official name and artwork of her new album, which will include 18 new songs and be released on August 23.
And that’s not all — Taylor also announced her next single from the album during her live stream, revealing that her new song You Need to Calm Down will drop in just a few hours at midnight (or at 12AM June 14).
“This album in tone, it’s very romantic — and not just thematically, like it’s all love songs,” Taylor said during her live stream. “I think 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 a conflict or dealing with things in your life … It looks at things with a very romantic gaze.”
As for her new single, Taylor revealed that it’ll also have it’s own music video, which will premiere June 17 on Good Morning America.
“The video is very worth the wait. There’s a lot going on in the video; I wanted that to be a separate discovery,” she said.
Lover will be Taylor’s seventh studio album, following up her most recent album reputation, which was released in November 2017.
