(Listen) Taylor Swift Scores a Sultry Hit with “Lover,” Title Track from New Album Produced by Jack Antonoff


Taylot Swift comes of age: “Lover,” the title track from her new album, is adult and sultry, bluesy even. Written with and produced by Jack Antonoff, like “The Archer,” this song sounds like Taylor is moving forward from pop pop pop. “Lover” is a torch song for our times. Yes, it sounds like something, but that’s okay. I think (I hope) it’s all theirs.
