TAYLOR SWIFT RETURNS TO POP THROUGH THE BIG DOOR


In 2019, when Taylor Swift released Lover, the singer closed the album with a full declaration of intent framed within Daylight, her latest song: “I wanna be defined by the things that I love. Not the things I hate. Not the things that I’m afraid of, not the things that haunt me in the middle of the night”; or what is the same: “I want to define myself by the things I love, not the things I hate. Not by the things that scare me, nor by those that torment me in the middle of the night.” Three years later, however, the one from Tennessee revolutionized social networks with the announcement of the arrival of Midnights after receiving the award for Best Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards; an album that, throughout thirteen songs, reviews thirteen sleepless nights in the life of the artist.

The hatred towards herself, the fantasy of revenge, the questioning of the decisions made and the trains that have been missed, falling in love or collapse are five of the themes that the soloist of great successes like Love Story or Blank Space advanced before the release of this album, which is already with us. And it is that Taylor does not deceive us, because this new project feels precisely like the other side of the Daylight coin, a Side B that cannot exist without the A.

In Lover, Taylor moved away from the darkness of Reputation to meet the light of day, to discover her own love after 20 years traveling in the middle of the night, to approach love from different points of view. Now, however, we return to the early hours and sleepless nights to attend one of his most personal projects, where there is room to open up to his fears and insecurities, to be vulnerable, but also for the beginning of a new illusion. and love.

Taylor Swift speaks precisely about love in Lavender Haze, the song with which the album opens and that best represents the musical variety that we find within the project: far from pianos, bowed string instruments and acoustic sounds that characterized Folfklore and Evermore, the singer says goodbye to Aaron Desneer in the production and her cottagecore style to return to percussions, synthesizers, blown voice, falsettos and pop in capital letters, accompanied (as in the last ten years) by Jack Antonoff, who co-writes eleven of the thirteen songs on Midnights and participates in the production of all of them.

In Lavender Haze she narrates the feeling of “being in a cloud” that accompanies the first months of falling in love, referring to the beginning of her relationship with Joe Alwyn and her desire to stay in that state as long as possible, without paying attention to the opinion of others. Maroon, for his part, slows down the tempo to make us witness nights of complicity in which no notion of time is lost, barefoot dances in New York, wine stains on clothing and the memory of moments of intimacy that weeks later they still leave us breathless. Of relationships that meant everything but of which there is nothing left.

With Anti-Hero, her lead single, she presents a theme with great contrasts between sound and lyrics. Staying in synth pop, he uses an animated and ethereal melody as a basis to put before our eyes his insecurities served on a silver platter: giving us details about his moments of depression and dissociation from reality, his awakenings after nightmares, of her constant comparisons with the rest of the world and her fear of abandonment, of everything that happens when she is able to look at the sun but not directly at its reflection, ceasing to be the protagonist of her own life to make way for the antihero.

In Snow On The Beach, her long-awaited collaboration with Lana del Rey, Taylor Swift briefly returns to a more alternative pop, where the hand of the New Yorker is noticeable, to offer us a ballad that revolves around the feeling of falling in love with a person at the same time. same time that the other person feels exactly the same, a magical sensation com
