Yesterday, the singer/songwriter released the third single off her upcoming album “Lover,” titled “The Archer.” It’s an emotionally-charged song where she talks about looking inward, finding your own flaws and understanding why some relationships don’t end up working out. And she revealed it’ll be the fifth track on the album, the spot that her most sensitive songs (“All Too Well,” anybody?) usually take.
There are lots of theories about the song floating around, like the possibility of it being a “sequel” of sorts to “Delicate,” the fifth track from her last album that references a “dive bar on the east side.” Coincidentally, there’s a bar in East London called the Archer, and Swift’s boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, is from London. The video for “Delicate” also ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, so will we get some clarity?
