The always industrious Taylor Swift has released even more new music, following last month’s surprise Folklore, an eight-part studio album.
The singer, 30, took to her Instagram on Tuesday to announce that the deluxe edition of the album is available to stream or download, and it features a bonus track called The Lakes.
And eagle-eared Swifties (or TS fans) was quick to point out that the new song apparently touches on the feelings of love she has for her beau, actor Joe Alwyn, unlike much of it. from the rest of the folklore which focuses on grief.

Swift, whose previous novels have been fodder since entering the scene as a teenage country star, has been notoriously deprived of her relationship with Joe, 29, but with The Lakes it may be. be changing.
With lyrics like “Take me to the lakes, where all the poets have gone to die | I do not belong and, my beloved, neither do you | These Windermere Peaks Look Like a Perfect Place to Cry | I’m leaving, but not without my muse, “Taylor seems to be singing about her private time with Alwyn.
Windermere is most certainly a reference to England’s largest natural lake in the famous Lakes District, and as the couple have spent a lot of time together in the UK, the passage might well hint at their private time in the countryside.

Other words seem to indicate how much she values their privacy and avoids those that would encroach on them:
»And I want you here | A red rose grew on a frozen ground of ice | No one to tweet ”or“ I’m not cut out for all those cynical clones | These hunters with cell phones ”.
Another passage says: “I have come too far | To watch breathtaking sleaze | Tell me what are my Wordsworth, ”which sounds both like a jab and a reference to the famous English poet William Wordsworth.
To accompany the fall of The Lakes, Taylor posted a nostalgic photo to her Instagram as well as a new lyric video to her YouTube account, which is made up of a series of slow shots of heather and shrubs typical of the British Isles.
The prolific Swift was talking about the lakes three weeks ago, when she released the tracklist for Folklore and tagged it as a bonus track.
She also announced that the record, her eighth studio album, will feature eight deluxe CD editions as well as eight deluxe vinyl editions, each with unique covers, photos and artwork available for a week.

And while The Lakes does appear to refer to his romance with Alwyn, which began in late 2016 or early 2017, it certainly isn’t the first reference Swift has made to the handsome actor in his music.
While it already seems eons ago that Taylor released Lover, his seventh studio album, last August, fans of that album remember the poppy track London Boy as a direct celebration of his connection to Alwyn.
“You know I love a boy from London,” she sang to this track by Alwyn, who was born in north London. “I love walking the Camden Market in the afternoon | He loves my American smile | Like a child when our eyes meet, honey, I love you.
