August 16, 2019

“Ladies and gentlemen, can you please stand?” asks Taylor Swift in “Lover,” the title track to her upcoming seventh studio album.

Over a swaying and strumming acoustic guitar, Swift sings about the simple joys of her relationship, making their own rules and hoping to be together forever. But at the bridge, Swift gets specific and starts of unveil some potential wedding vows, which will no doubt be making an appearance at ballrooms and rented halls around the world this fall.

“With every guitar string scar on my hand I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover,” she sings. “My heart’s been borrowed and yours has been blue, All’s well that ends well to end up with you.”

“Swear to be overdramatic and true to my lover,” she adds. “You'll save all your dirtiest jokes for me, and at every table I'll save you a seat, lover.”

Part of those lyrics were revealed earlier this month in Swift’s cover story with Vogue, setting off a storm of speculation about Taylor’s relationship status. It will surely only be strengthened by the full song, despite denial from her representatives. Swift and boyfriend Joe Alwyn met in 2016, “three summers ago” as the song says.

“Lover” is co-produced by Jack Antonoff, and is the latest sample from an album Swift has called a “love letter to love.”

“I was compiling ideas for a very long time,” Swift told Vogue. “There are so many ways in which this album feels like a new beginning. This album is really a love letter to love, in all of its maddening, passionate, exciting, enchanting, horrific, tragic, wonderful glory.”

Lover is available everywhere on August 23.
