 Taylor Swift attends FOX’s Teen Choice Awards 2019 on Aug. 11, 2019 in Hermosa Beach, Calif. 

After much anticipation, Taylor Swift has finally released her new album’s title track. The singer unleashed “Lover” at midnight Thursday night (Aug. 15) and also revealed that fans can expect the song’s music video to arrive next week.

The track is an old-school ballad with a booming snare, keys and a wholesome ’60s vibe. TayTay opens the song, “We can leave the Christmas lights up ’till January. This is our place, we made the rules.”

Lover, Swift’s seventh studio album, will be released on Aug. 23. Swift will celebrate the release with a Town Hall special on SiriusXM—including stripped-down performances of some of its songs as well as a Q-and-A session—that day at 5 p.m. EST. The “Lover” music video will be released on Aug. 22 at 5 p.m. EST via YouTube Live.
