Watch Taylor Swift and Post Malone’s New Video for ‘Fortnight’

    Taylor Swift has shared the music video for ‘Fortnight’, the Post Malone-featuring opening track on her new album The Tortured Poets Department. The visual was written and directed by Swift and co-stars the musicians along with Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles. Watch it below.

    “When I was writing the Fortnight music video, I wanted to show you the worlds I saw in my head that served as the backdrop for making this music,” Swift wrote online. “Pretty much everything in it is a metaphor or a reference to one corner of the album or another.” She continued:

    For me, this video turned out to be the perfect visual representation of this record and the stories I tell in it. Post Malone blew me away on set as our tortured tragic hero and I’m so grateful to him for everything he put into this collaboration. I’m still laughing from getting to work with the coolest guys on earth, Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles (tortured poets, meet your colleagues from down the hall, the dead poets). I still can’t believe I get to work with the unfathomably brilliant Rodrigo Prieto on cinematography and my team of dream collaborators: Ethan Tobman (production design), Chancler Haynes (editor), Anthony Dimino (1st AD), Jil Hardin (producer) and Dom Thomas (executive producer). Parliament aced the VFX as always. Joseph Cassell, Lorrie Turk and Jemma Muradian made these tortured looks come to life. The entire crew made this a dream to shoot. Thank you to everyone involved and everyone who has watched it!!
