Taylor Swift just revealed details about what’s next for her, including a new album entitled Lover and a collaboration with Stella McCartney. In an Instagram Live video on Thursday, the singer confirmed the already-rumored album title and revealed its release date: Aug. 23. “Another thing I wanted to tell you . . for the release of the Lover album, there’s gonna be a collaboration that I’ve done with Stella McCartney,” Taylor added.
“She’s been a friend for a really long time and also just a woman that I respect so much. I respect what she creates, how she creates it. There’s so much whimsy and imagination and romance to the clothing that she designs. I’ve worn a lot of her stuff recently, and she’s heard the new album, and this new collaboration is inspired by the Lover album.” Taylor wore a beautiful Stella McCartney dress to the BAFTA Awards in February, which she attended with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
More details about the collaboration will be shared closer to the launch, but if it’s anything like Taylor’s recent aesthetic, we can expect pastels and butterflies. “I’m really really honored that she would want to collaborate in this way,” Taylor said.
