Taylor Swift announces new album <i>Lover</i>

Taylor Swift's got new music on the way, whether you like it or not. Today, Taylor took to Instagram Live to announce her new album, Lover, is due on August 23, her first via Republic Records. She also unveiled its Valheria Rocha-shot album cover, which serves some major VSCO-edited Pinterest cotton candy realness. The second single after "ME!" is called "You Need To Calm Down," and it's dropping tonight at midnight.


Swift described the vibe of the 18-track album as "romantic," and also revealed that there's four different collectors versions that'll hit Target shelves come August. Elsewhere in the Swiftie universe, she and Katy Perry have allegedly made up and likely have a collaboration in the works, so get ready for that.
