Taylor Swift has shared the first music video from her album Midnights. It’s for the third track, ‘Anti-Hero’, which, like most of the new record, was written and co-produced by Swift and Jack Antonoff. Swift also wrote and directed the clip for ‘Anti-Hero’, which sees her reckoning with the various insecurities she lays out in the song. Watch it below.
Ahead of Midnights‘ release, Swift shared a teaser trailer for a series of “music movies” accompanying the album, confirming that they will feature appearances from Laura Dern, Antonoff, HAIM, John Early, Mike Birbiglia, and Dita von Teese. The trailer premiered during this week’s Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the visuals reunited Swift with cinematographer Rina Yang, who worked on her All Too Well short film last year. “I love storytelling, I love songwriting, I love writing videos, I love directing them,” Swift said in a statement. “And this was a really fun opportunity to work again with the cinematographer Rina Yang.”
She added: “I’m really proud of what we made and I really hope you like them. We worked with some amazing actors, which you’ll find out more about at the end of the teaser trailer,” she continued to tease.
