Taylor Swift's seventh studio album is officially out. LOVER has been highly anticipated by Swift's fans for months. The album features her singles, "Me!" featuring Brendon Urie, "You Need To Calm Down" and "Lover."
Swift described the album to TIME as a romantic one saying that it was "not just simply thematically, like it's all love song of something. The idea of something being romantic, it doesn't have to be a happy song. You can find romance in loneliness or sadness or going through things in your life." Now that the album is out it is clear that this description is accurate. Especially with the song "Cornelia Street."
While on-air with the Elvis Duran Show Friday, August 23rd, Swift explained that the song "Cornelia Street," is "about the things that took place and the memories that took place on that street.... all the nostalgia." Swift reveals that this is the only song on the album she wrote alone.
Jack Antonoff, although he says he only had a small part, worked through this album with Swift. "He's one of the most amazing people to create with because of his versatility," says Swift to Elvis Duran on working with Antonoff. She goes on to explain how he helped her write her first single off of Reputation, "Look What You Made Me Do," and then helped her write the song "Lover" from her latest album. Anyone who could write two drastically different songs like that has to be a genius.
