The 18-track record is the 29-year-old pop star’s first since 2017’s Reputation and clocks in at just over one hour.
Swift’s thoughtful lyrics are reflected in the accompanying video, which romantically depicts the star living her life in happiness, forever devoted to her onscreen lover.
“[Lover] is very much a celebration of love, in all its complexity, coziness, and chaos,” she wrote.
Swift continued: “It’s the first album of mine that I’ve ever owned, and I couldn’t be more proud.”
As part of her deal, the Blank Space singer now has the rights to all her releases post-Reputation.
