How cool is that? -Yeah, it's good! -Dude, it's a great cover. -I think it'll work. -Did you always know "Lover" was gonna be the name of it or no? -Um, so, I toyed around with calling the album "Daylight" for a while, but I thought that might be a little too, like, on-the-nose or -- I don't know, because my last album, "Reputation," um, I saw as, like, this nighttime album. Like, in the city... -Yes. -...in the nighttime. -Yes!
