Soon after Taylor Swift released her emotional new ballad "Lover," the title track off of her upcoming album, co-producer Jack Antonoff shared some details about the song's studio session on Twitter. Swift, who's credited as the sole songwriter, penned the love song at the piano the night before joining Antonoff and sound engineer Laura Sisk at New York's Electric Lady Studios.
"lover the song out today. did this one entirely at electric lady in NYC. only laura sisk and taylor in the room. taylor wrote every stitch of this song and came in and played it for me - just a perfect moment to hear what she had done alone the night before," Antonoff said on Twitter Friday (Aug. 16).
He went on to describe the six-hour session that commenced: "when someone brings in a song that speaks so much just on a piano it’s rare to imagine production around," he wrote, "but then we started playing with space echo reverb on a snare hit really hard with a brush."
