Taylor Swift Reveals Her New Album Is Titled Lover — Here's Everything We Know

Taylor Swift is back with new music! In April, the singer dropped the whimsical music video for her single "ME!" with Panic! at the Disco vocalist Brendon Urie, and now we officially have more details about her seventh album. During an Instagram Live, Swift revealed the title of the album is Lover, and it will be released on Aug. 23. A good way to remember that date? August is the eighth month of the year, and when you add eight, two, and three, you get Swift's favorite number, 13.

As if that wasn't exciting enough, we also have a new song to look forward to. Swift revealed that she'll be releasing her second single, "You Need to Calm Down," at midnight on June 13. As we patiently wait for more Taylor Swift music, here are all the details we have so far.

The Album Is Already Finished

During a radio interview with Zach Sang, the singer revealed the album was already completed before she released "ME!" in April. "I like to be able to have the information to give [before I release a lead single], and when I have something done, that's when I can fully plan and make it the most fun experience for fans," she explained. In fact, she actually started working on the album after the Reputation tour ended. "I started working on it pretty much immediately after, but I did have a lot of ideas I'd been cultivating while I was on tour," she told Kiss 92.5. "I pretty much got into the studio when I got off tour and stayed there. I was very ready to make the next thing. I knew exactly what I wanted to make next."

It Will Be Very Different From Reputation

If Swift's colorful and peppy "ME!" music video didn't give it away, this seventh album will be a complete 180 from her Reputation album. In an iHeartRadio interview, Taylor said the new era will be "mischievous," "glittery," and "a little bit more playful than last time." During an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music's Beats 1, she also revealed the album will be "more playful and actually inward facing" from the "defensive tone" of Reputation. "Like, when you get into this album, it's much more about me as a person — no pun intended with the song title. But it's kind of taking those walls, taking that bunker down from around you that I felt like I had to put up . . ."

There Are a Lot of Emotional Songs

While "ME!" was certainly fun and light, Swift added that the single doesn't necessarily "sum up what the album is" as a whole. In fact, she teased that fans can expect a lot more emotional tracks with "in-depth lyrics." "The album has lots of different emotional tones to it, in the same way that a person is never going to just be happy all the time," Swift said. "When I make an album, it's never just going to be a happy album."

There Are 18 Tracks on the Album

Get ready for even more songs this time around! During her Instagram Live, Swift revealed that the album will feature 18 tracks. There will also be four deluxe versions of the album available at Target and on her website.

The Album Cover Is a Pastel Dream

During her Instagram Live, Swift gave fans a glimpse of the album cover, which features the singer in front of a rainbow backdrop and a heart around her eye.
