About "Lover"

"Lover" is a song written and performed by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, taken from her seventh studio album of the same name (2019). Aiming to create a timeless love song, Swift wrote the track about an intimate and committed relationship. The way that newlywed couples customize their marriage vows inspired the bridge, which draws on the bridal rhyme "Something old". Produced alongside Jack Antonoff, the song combines country and indie folk over a waltz tempo. It has an acoustic-guitar-driven, retro-influenced balladic production consisting of snare drums, piano, pizzicato strings, and vocals saturated in reverberation.

Republic Records released "Lover" for digital download and streaming on August 16, 2019; the song became the album's third radio single the next month. Swift and Drew Kirsch directed the music video, which was released on August 22 and follows a couple living inside a dollhouse in a snow globe. Three alternate versions of "Lover" were released—a duet remix featuring Canadian singer Shawn Mendes, an orchestral remix based on Swift's performance at the 2019 American Music Awards subtitled "First Dance Remix", and a live version recorded at Swift's 2019 City of Lover concert.

Music critics lauded "Lover" for what they thought were emotionally engaging lyrics and a romantic production; many appreciated the production reminiscent of Swift's early albums. Publications including Billboard, Complex, and Pitchfork featured the song on their 2019 year-end lists. It was Swift's first solo-written track nominated for Song of the Year at the 2020 Grammy Awards, and its video received two MTV Video Music Award nominations. The single peaked within the top 10 in Australia, Canada, the United States, Ireland, Lebanon, New Zealand, and Singapore, and received multi-platinum certifications in the first three countries.
