Taylor Swift Drops Her Seventh Studio Album, Speaks of the Title & Goes Political

A prolific pop star Taylor Swift has gone live with her seventh studio album.


The highly-anticipated album is titled Lover and is comprised of 18 new songs, including already-released tunes such as “ME!”, “The Archer” and “You Need to Calm Down”.

Evidently, the new album deals with love and Taylor’s longtime sweetheart Joe Alwin. Moreover, her song “Lover” went on to spark engagement rumors as lyrics also reference a wedding tradition.

“My heart’s been borrowed and yours has been blue. All’s well that ends well to end up with you.” Swift says in her song.

Speaking with Ryan Seacrest in an interview on his radio show called ‘On Air With Ryan Seacrest’, the singer revealed that the new album almost had an entirely different name – Daylight.

However, she went on to change the original name.

“With Reputation, I came up with the album name before I even wrote song number one for that album, but with this one, I was halfway into writing the songs before I wrote the song ‘Lover.’ That’s the song I wrote alone and it was one of those songs that just freely — I just somehow wrote this song really quickly in the middle of the night at my piano — and all of a sudden I knew that was the title of the album,” she said.

Controversy, Again…

Taylor Swift is known as a highly opinionated person who speaks her heart out.

In the latest turn of events, Swift did not seem to take a literal interpretation of her new song “You Need to Calm Down” as she got political during her 2019 MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech for the Video of the Year.

As she was recognized for her pride-themed anthem, Swift called out Trump and his administration’s lack of acknowledgement of the Equality Act petition for LGBTQ rights.

“It now has half a million signatures, which is five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response from the White House,” Swift said, before looking at her wrist as if to gesture she was checking the time on a watch.

In addition to Swift, rapper French Montana and Alison Brie of ‘GLOW’ also dived into political topics with their pro-immigration stance when they presented the award for the best Latin music video.
