It's finally here
After days of teasing, Taylor Swift has finally shared her brand new video for ‘Delicate’.
The track, taken from last year’s ‘Reputation’ album, finds Swift skewering her public perception in the wake of a new crush – “My reputation’s never been worse, so you must like me for me,” she sings. It’s a mood that’s mirrored in ‘Delicate”s new video, too, with Swift enacting some goofy dance moves throughout. Check it out below.
Speaking over a pre-recorded message delivered at the iHeartRadio Awards, Swift said: “Hey, guys, I just wanted to say thank you so much for this award… But in my absence and to show my gratitude, I really wanted to show you my brand-new video for my new single, ‘Delicate’.” She also explained that her recent disappearance from the public eye is due to rehearsals for her upcoming world tour.
In a four-star review of Swift’s latest record, NME said: “While ‘Reputation’ packs heavy artillery that was almost entirely absent from ‘1989’, it’s actually a helluva ride.”
Last week, Swift’s video director hit back at fans’ criticism of his ‘futuristic’ videos for the star.
In her last video for ‘End Game’, Swift was seen partying around the world with Ed Sheeran and Future. One section sees her at a bar in London with the pair, before hopping on a red bus and taking a trip to a kebab shop in Kentish Town. Later, she walks across Millennium Bridge.
