The 29-year-old American star signs a romantic and colorful album, two years after the dark Reputation .

After months of announcements and  teasing , fans of Taylor Swift can finally breathe: the 29-year-old American singer released this Friday her Lover , the seventh opus highly anticipated. 

With this new album, Taylor Swift finds the pop and sweet sounds that made its first success while venturing into unexplored territories – like the very funk I Think He Knows . New in the field of political speaking, she also displays her feminist sensibilities ( The Man ) and LGBT-friendly ( You Need To Calm Down ). 

The album, as a whole, sounds like a love letter to British actor Joe Alwyn, whom she has been sharing very quietly for three years. With this sweet and colorful universe, Taylor Swift moves away from the dark Reputation , her previous record released in 2017. In the night, she also unveiled the romantic and colorful video of her latest single.

Queen of communication, Taylor Swift was able to raise the sauce around these 18 new songs. Fans have been speculating on Lover’s content   for months, decrypting clues disseminated by the singer in her clips, Instagram posts, and Spotify playlists. 

More than a return to musical sources, Lover marks a new chapter in the career of the star. This is her first album since she joined Republic Records and Universal after a career with the Big Machine label.

On Thursday, she announced that she will return to studios next year to re-record her first five opuses. The singer seeks to regain control over her work since the “masters” fell into the hands of Scooter Braun , music industry mogul with whom she has quarreled for years.
