The video is set to be premiered on May 17, at the beginning of this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

Earlier this week, Swift revealed that she wrote the song ‘You Are In Love’ after Girls creator and star Lena Dunham opened up about her relationship with Bleachers singer Jack Antonoff.

Rookie founder Tavi Gevinson interviewed Swift for Elle magazine’s “Women In Music” issue and asked the singer about the song’s lyric “You’re my best friend”. Swift replied: “I’ve never had that, so I wrote that song about things that Lena [Dunham] has told me about her and Jack [Antonoff]. That’s just basically stuff she’s told me. And I think that that kind of relationship — God, it sounds like it would just be so beautiful — would also be hard. It would also be mundane at times.”
