About Lover

Lover is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on August 23, 2019, by Republic Records. As the executive producer, Swift worked with producers Jack Antonoff, Joel Little, Louis Bell, Frank Dukes, and Sounwave on the album. Described by Swift as "a love letter to love itself", the album celebrates the ups and downs of love and incorporates brighter, more cheerful tones, departing from the dark sounds of its predecessor, Reputation (2017). The album's cover art and music videos marked a change in Swift's visual appearance, which now embodies a summer-oriented look, consisting mainly of pastel colors. Musically, it is a pop, pop rock, electropop and synth-pop record that contains influences of country, dream pop, bubblegum pop, funk, pop punk, R&B, and indie pop. Lover features collaborations with the Dixie Chicks and Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco. It was preceded by three singles, the international top-five singles "Me!" and "You Need to Calm Down", and the title track, all of which reached the top ten on the US Billboard Hot 100. The album received positive reviews from critics, who commended Swift's songwriting conveying emotional maturity and honesty. A few commentators, however, found the album lengthy and inconsistent in places. Lover reached three million album-equivalent units in worldwide consumption by the end of its first week of release and debuted at number one in countries including Australia, Canada, Spain, the UK, and the US. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for moving over one million units in the US. To promote the album, Swift is set to embark on the Lover Fest, her sixth concert tour and first music festival tour, beginning on June 20, 2020.
