How Swifties Celebrate the Release of Taylor Swift's Album 'Lover'

The step-by-step guide.

August 23, 2019

Taylor Swift dropped her 7th studio album, Lover, today. (Well, last night at 11 p.m.)

For major #Swifties, like the morning show's Erin, this isn't just an album release day. Nope, it's a National Holiday. It's the start of the #Lover era, understandably a happier and more welcoming era than #Reputaton with its crimson red lips and vengeful snakes. 

As Erin mentioned, this is the first album where Taylor isn't crying teardrops on her guitar but is actually in love instead. 

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we put together this step-by-step guide to celebrating #Lover day. 


1a. Skip work because it's a national holiday.

1. Listen to the album AS SOON AS IT DROPS. (Or as soon as you get off the plane.)

2. Talk to your friends about the album instead of going to sleep. 

3. Pick your favorite songs. 

4. Dissect all the lyrics. 

5. Run to Target as soon as it opens to pick up a hard copy of the album. 

6. Struggle to decide which of the 4 DELUXE versions to purchase. 

7. Let Taylor's spirit guide you to the right choice. 

8. Take pictures with your new purchase. 

9. Tweet Taylor and tell her how much you love her. 

10. Play the album on repeat all day long. 

11. Re-watch the #Lover music video a few times to find all the Easter Eggs.
