Taylor Swift has announced her seventh studio album: Lover. It comes out August 23 via Republic. Lover includes Taylor Swift’s latest single “ME!,” as well as a forthcoming track titled “You Need to Calm Down.” The new album is Taylor’s follow-up to 2017’s reputation. “You Need to Calm Down” is slated to drop tonight, while its accompanying music video will arrive June 17. Find the cover art for Lover below.
In April, Taylor released her colorful music video for “ME!,” starring Tay and Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie as a couple bickering (in French) over their pet cats. The video was preceded by a mysterious countdown clock and multiple teaser visuals signaling that new T-Swift music was on the way, including kittens, sparkly hearts, baby chickens, and more. Taylor also posed in front of a large butterfly mural in Nashville ahead of the song’s release (the word “ME!” was painted between the butterfly’s wings.)
