UPDATE (6/26/2019, 3:43 P.M. GST): Taylor Swift release her seventh studio album: Lover. It comes out today via Republic. Lover includes Taylor Swift’s latest single “ME!,” as well as a new 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 out now—listen here—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.)
Earlier this month, Swift penned an open letter to Tennessee’s Republican Senator Lamar Alexander in support of the Equality Act. The bill is an expansion of the Civil Rights Act that prohibits employers from discriminating against anyone because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. “The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable,” she wrote.
the tracklist for Taylor’s upcoming album Lover is still under wraps – but we know it’ll feature new songs ‘ME!’ and ‘You Need to Calm Down‘.
Lover will drop on August 23
