How do you say dream lover in french? Sounwave has co-writing and co-producing credits on the song "London Boy"; other artists with writing credits include St. Vincent , Cautious Clay , and Brendon Urie. I was sitting up at the piano up in my loft, and I had the chorus.
It just kind of happened immediately. It was one of those ones that I wrote very, very, very quickly; and I was working out the cadence of the first verse and it just sort of fell together. But then I took some time to write the bridge , because I wanted to really level up with that bridge.
That one would for me would be less of a ranting bridge and more of a story-time fable type bridge. Sometimes, I like to imagine a bridge as like a sort of fairytale lullaby fable expanding upon a song that has been not as detailed until that point. It expands on it all. Swift played the song on the piano for them; herself and Antonoff produced the final version of the song during a six-hour recording session, using a "space echo" reverberation effect, a Paul McCartney -inspired bassline , a "washy" piano, a "dream sequence wedding" mellotron , a 12 string , live drums and a " snare hit really hard with a brush".
I think that when people make art, other people make art and especially women who make art, I find it highly inspiring.
I watched this movie on Netflix called Someone Great. I cried watching the movie. For about a week, I start waking up from dreams that I'm living out that scenario—that that's happening to me. I'd have these lyrics in my head based on the dynamics of these characters and I went in the studio with Jack Antonoff. Reputation was so far from what I usually do. And Lover feels like a return to the fundamental songwriting pillars that I usually build my house on. It's really honest; it's not me playing a character.
It's really just how I feel, undistilled. And there are a lot of very personal admissions in it. And also, I love a metaphor. I love building on the metaphor for a very long time. You know, the whole of Reputation was just a metaphor, but this [ Lover ] is a very personal record. So that's been really fun.
The standard edition of Lover consists of 18 tracks, making it the longest studio album in Swift's catalogue thus far. The deluxe edition adds two bonus voice memos that feature demo versions of the tracks "I Forgot That You Existed" and " Lover ". Lover is primarily a pop record,  encompassing synth-pop , pop rock ,   electropop   and retro elements ,   with motifs of different styles of music such as country , pop punk , indie-pop , folk rock and quiet storm.
The A. Club noticed the "kind of uniform sonic mood board last heard on "; how Lover mixes "contemporary touchstones" and " indie -electropop" with "plenty of piano and modernized spins on retro flourishes". Dubbed as Swift's most romantic and free-spirited work yet,   Lover is "a celebration of love, in all its complexity, coziness, and chaos"  and "a love letter to love, in all of its maddening, passionate, exciting, enchanting, horrific, tragic, wonderful glory",  presenting Swift's most mature understanding of love yet.
The album's highly detailed lyrics have been found reminiscent to that of Swift's old-school work, where "characters were drafted with novelistic specificity",  especially the "personal lyricism" of Speak Now  and the confessional songwriting of Red Open-hearted love songs dominate Lover, and examines love "in all its aspects". The songs consist of "diary-honest" lyrics, "cathartic" bridges , "unalloyed ebullience", "clever couplets and witty turns of phrase"; while also celebrating Swift's sense of humor, departing from the serious Reputation persona.
It is a pastel-hued compromise between the good and the bad—not in spite of who she's been, but because of who she's been". Lover has been defined as a "distillation of everything that Swift has already accomplished, different components condensed to reflect her current interests and longtime strengths as a singer-songwriter"  and a "dazzling, bursting compendium of pompous hope, modest love, and sobering grief, as well as a journey to make peace with the past".
Club opined that Lover finds Swift in a "confident headspace, secure in the knowledge she has no need to prove herself to anybody". The punchy opening track "I Forgot That You Existed" is a light-hearted pop rap and post- tropical house song, where Swift declares her indifference to her detractors and farewell to the events that inspired Reputation , with a reference to Drake and his song " In My Feelings ".
In " The Man ", Swift imagines the media's treatment of her if she were a man,  over a production featuring flashy harmonies, murky synths and rumbling beats. It sees Swift examining the blossoming of a relationship, speculating how much the subject can surmise her feelings for him, mentioning Music Row. Marked with peppy cheerleader chants ,   Swift expresses her disillusionment at the state of US politics , using the song as a metaphorical critique.
The incandescent ballad "Afterglow" sees Swift apologizing to a romantic partner for the impending failure of a relationship,   propelled by a slow and heavy bass. I want to be defined by the things that I love. Not the things I hate, not the things I'm afraid of, the things that haunt me in the middle of the night. I think that you are what you love.
The cover artwork of Lover was shot and edited by year-old Colombian photographer and collage artist , Valheria Rocha; she, along with Swift, handled the art direction of the photographs used for the album's campaign.
I think about Lover , and all the glitter heart eyes it inspired and the way people photoshopped themselves on the cover: everyone, from my neighbor to Ellen DeGeneres. There's a level of iconicness and relatability that made the cover influential. People saw they could easily make their own versions of Lover and I think it makes them feel a little closer to Taylor.
The cover artwork features Swift in her signature red lips, with a heart-shaped pink glitter arrangement surrounding her right eye, before a cloudy sky dominated by pink and blue hues, as well as a yellow light leak. The album title is etched above Swift's head, in a slanted, pink, glittery, cursive font. The aesthetic of Lover has been described as daytime,  summer,  and spring,  incorporating butterflies,  hearts ,  floral  and kitsch ,  and consisting heavily of pastel colors.
Lover was released on August 23, , through Republic Records ; it's the first album by Swift to be released under the label since her departure from Big Machine Records in November It is the first time Swift made her album available for streaming on its release day, and the first time she made an album available for digital purchase directly on her website.
The deluxe edition comes in four versions, each containing a CD, two bonus audio memos and a blank journal , with different bonus content of Swift's old diary entries, photos, and a poster. Swift teased her seventh studio album through cryptic hint-dropping and " easters eggs " on social media. Entertainment Weekly wrote, Swift "has perfected the pop culture feedback loop: She shares updates about her life and drops hints about new music, which fans then gobble up and re-promote with their own theories, which Swift then re-shares on her Tumblr or incorporates into future clues.
It's like a T-Swift-built Escher staircase of personal memories and moments that tease what's next". Swift commented that she loves "that they [fans] like the cryptic hint-dropping. Because as long as they like it, I'll keep doing it. It's fun. It feels mischievous and playful". The magazine added that Swift "has designed the ultimate artistic scavenger hunt — and it's easy to get swept up in its drama, even if you don't listen to her music", and that she makes the audience "feel like they're on the journey with her".
A few weeks before the expected release of Lover , Swift invited a select group of fans to private listening parties called Secret Sessions , to listen to the album, a tradition which began with in These sessions were held in London ,  Nashville ,  and Los Angeles. The New York Times highlighted Swift's "old-fashioned" way of releasing Lover , from the release of its lead single "Me! The newspaper stated that Swift is "steady in her traditional pop playbook, with radio singles, music videos, magazine covers, television appearances and a stream of things for sale, all on schedule", even though the majority of the music industry has adapted to the digital era.
Swift performed songs from Lover on several televised events. On May 1, , Swift and Urie made the first live performance of "Me!
On September 17, , Swift announced the Lover Fest , a concert tour set to begin in the summer of , starting on June 20, , in Werchter, Belgium and concluding on August 1, , in Foxborough, Massachusetts. I want to perform it in a way that feels authentic. I want to go to some places I haven't been and play festivals. Where we didn't have festivals, we made some. Due to the growing concerns over the COVID pandemic , all festival dates planned for the tour were cancelled, with the US and Brazil shows postponed and to be rescheduled to sometime in Lover was supported by four singles and a promotional single ; all of which charted inside the top 40 of the Billboard Hot —three of them reached the top ten.
It was released along with its symbolic music video on April 26, The video—Swift's solo directorial debut—was met with praise from critics for its satire and features cameos from Swift's father Scott Swift and TikTok star Loren Gray. Therefore, the song would not receive an accompanying music video; however, a lyric video accompanied the song's release.
Lover received generally positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic , which assigns a normalized rating out of to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 79 based on 26 sources. Rob Sheffield from Rolling Stone called the album "overpowering" and a "career-capping masterpiece". Club called the album "one of [Swift's] strongest, most relatable albums to date He further described the album as "grown-up, complex pop".
Bryan Rolli of Forbes called Lover a "masterful, heartfelt pop spectacle", where Swift "refuses to cop to too many younger trends"; instead, "she perfects a winning formula, shooting her anthemic love songs and heart-on-sleeve lyricism skyward with '80s synthesizers and enough gang vocals to fill a stadium by herself".
He deemed Lover as "musically and lyrically rich, fulfilling in the same way that staying up all night and having a heart-to-heart conversation with an old friend is".
In a less favorable review, Sal Cinquemani from Slant Magazine wrote the album "attempts to be something to everyone" but "lacks a unified sonic aesthetic". However, he remarked Swift's songwriting as better "than any of her competitors" and praised "False God" and "It's Nice to Have a Friend" for being "more satisfying".
Numerous publications placed Lover in their year-end best-albums lists. Most notably, Rolling Stone and Variety named Lover the best album of After years of answering this question, I have found one card in the deck that is always relevant: The Lovers. When the Lovers card first appears, it often leaves the querent a little starry-eyed.
It must mean that everything will be okay, that he feels the same way she does, and that they have a connection that runs deep. Depending on the other cards drawn, it could mean everything she wants it to mean, but the card on its own has a lot to say on her question.
The Lovers card is about how humans interact and fit in with another.Not only is it okay - they really should.
