Hours before dropping her seventh studio album, Taylor Swift unveiled the music video for her newest song “Lover.”
On Thursday afternoon, the Grammy winner, 29, released the romantic video, which stars her longtime backup dancer Christian Owens.
“The leading man in this video is someone I have performed on stage with for years,” said Swift during a YouTube Live ahead of the video’s release. “[He was the] leading man in the ‘King of My Heart’ performance every night on the reputation tour. Every night I could see how expressive he is and just how heroic and what an amazing actor he is as well.”
While Swift — who revealed the music video concept was inspired by a lyric (“And so it goes / You two are dancing in a snow globe ’round and ’round”) from her song “You Are in Love” off of 1989 — doesn’t refer to her British beau Joe Alwyn, 28, by name on the touching ballad, it’s obvious the track was inspired by their romance.
“I’ve loved you three summers now, honey / But I want them all,” sings Swift, who is rumored to be celebrating her third anniversary with the actor this year.
