Tuesday 10pm: Feature LP: Taylor Swift – Lover (2019)

Lover is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on August 23, 2019, by Republic Records. As executive producer, Swift worked with producers Jack Antonoff, Joel Little, Louis Bell, Frank Dukes, and Sounwave on the album. Described by Swift as a “love letter to love itself”, Lover celebrates the ups and downs of love and incorporates brighter, more cheerful tones, departing from the dark sounds of its predecessor, Reputation (2017).

The lead single, “Me!”, featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, was released on April 26, 2019. The second single “You Need to Calm Down” was released on June 14, 2019. The title track was released as the third single on August 16, 2019. Aside from Urie, Lover also features a collaboration with the Dixie Chicks. The album received generally positive reviews from critics, who commended Swift’s songwriting conveying emotional maturity and honesty, but found it lengthy and inconsistent in places.
