According to Swift’s Instagram, the Dixie Chicks will appear on a song called “Soon You’ll Get Better,” the album’s 12th track.

Lover features a whopping 18 tracks marks a new chapter for the former country star.
“There are so many ways in which this album feels like a new beginning,” she told Vogue. “This album is really a love letter to love, in all of its maddening, passionate, exciting, enchanting, horrific, tragic, wonderful glory.”
The trio’s Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison have also teased a new Dixie Chicks album and even shared a video of themselves in the studio with one of Swift’s frequent collaborators, singer/songwriter/producer, Jack Antonoff.
Lover will be available everywhere beginning Friday, August 23.
