LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Taylor Swift went live on Instagram last night to announce her seventh studio album, Lover.
The album will feature 18 tracks, more than any previous Swift album, and come in a standard CD edition as well as four different deluxe physical editions, all featuring “unique content”, including audio of “the full creation” of two songs from the album.
The deluxe editions will be available through Target in the US, and worldwide via Swift’s website, however, the album is available for pre-order and pre-save on streaming services now.
Swift also revealed the album cover, shot by Valheria Rocha, and trailed a collaboration with designer Stella McCartney, based on Lover.
“It’s romantic in tone,” Swift said of the album during the livestream. “Not just thematically, like it’s all love songs. Because the idea of being romantic, it doesn’t have to be a happy song. You can find romance in loneliness or sadness or going through conflict or dealing with things in your life.”
The first single from the album “Me!,” featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco, dropped back in April and shattered a string of streaming records in its opening 24 hours. Meanwhile, the album’s second single, “You Need To Calm Down,” which sees Swift taking on trolls, haters and online media critics, also dropped last night.
Lover is due out on August 23.
