While Taylor Swift fans patiently await the drop of her seventh studio album, Swift gave a little something to hold them over with the unveiling of her music video for “Lover.”
The video shows Swift and her partner dancing, hugging, cooking, and hanging out around a bright, colorful house. The love ballad begins with soft instrumentals and Swift flipping between a seat at the drum set and a place on the couch with her guitar.
The end of the video shows Swift plucking away at a violin, and it’s not until the final moments that the romantic video shows that the happy couple has been swirling around in a snow globe.
The video stars Swift’s longtime backup dancer, Christian Owens. The two dance around in a mystical, snowy wonderland.
Just before the video’s release, Swift appeared on a YouTube Live session where she revealed a few insider tidbits about the video. “The leading man in this video is someone I have performed on stage with for years,” she reveals.
She opened up about being inspired by a line from “You Are In Love” off of her album “1989.” The romantic line begins, “And so it goes / You two are dancing in a snow globe ‘round and ‘round.”
The track and video are laced with Christmas and holiday imagery.
The album, “Lover,” to be released on Friday, is also the inspiration for a fashion collaboration with Stella McCartney. The clothing features much of the same pastel colors and whimsical rainbows that surround her upcoming album.
"It’s been SO much fun to work/dream up cute stuff with my friend @stellamccartney to create a line inspired by my new album Lover," the "The Archer" singer writes on Instagram.
