Taylor Swift's eagerly anticipated seventh studio album Lover was released on August 23 and we're here to make sure you can listen to the platform of your choice. Lover is now available for all digital platforms. Whether you want to stream it, download it, or buy a physical copy, follow our instructions to make sure you do not miss one of the biggest music events of the year.
Four tracks on the album ̵
Now that Lover is in the world, it's obvious that the four-course aperitif will draw a complete and accurate picture of what's to come. Swift effortlessly swings between subtle, political songs like Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince and sassy punk popbops like Paper Rings. Standouts Cruel Summer and The Man are definitely competing for the role of Swift's next official single, while Swift's emotional collaboration with the Dixie Chicks was written about her mother Andrea's fight against cancer.
18 titles have something for everyone, and choosing a favorite is not an easy task. Each of the songs is bursting with classic Swiftian storytelling, cementing their reputation as one of the music industry's most accomplished songwriting talents. Of course you do, so immerse yourself.
