Taylor Swift plays a red-haired homewrecker in Sugarland’s ’60s-inspired new video – watch

Swift almost released the song 'Babe' back in 2012

Taylor Swift stars in the country duo Sugarland’s new video for ‘Babe’ – check it out below.

The ‘reputation‘ pop star co-wrote the band’s new single alongside Train’s Pat Monahan. It was originally meant to feature on Swift’s 2012 album ‘Red’. Now, the track has resurfaced and appears as a collaboration on Sugarland’s new record ‘Bigger’.

Swift stars in the Mad Men-inspired visuals for the track, which see her portray a red-haired housewife who seduces an unfaithful husband. At the end of the clip, Swift’s character is seen sat alone on the kitchen floor.

The band’s Jennifer Nettles said that Swift came up with the concept. “She actually reached out to us and said, ‘I’ve got a great idea for the video,’ and she wrote the treatment,” Nettles told People.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is currently on the UK leg of her massive ‘reputation’ stadium tour. Find tickets here. The show is set to hit London’s Wembley Stadium for two nights on June 22/23.

Kicking off the UK stint in Manchester on Friday night (June 8), Swift paid tribute to the city – speaking of last year’s terror attack at Ariana Grande’s arena show.

Swift told the crowd: “Concerts are supposed to be about innocence, and about joy and about excitement, and what happened just over a year ago in this city was an attempt to steal that innocence.”

“Ever since then, you have shown such strength,” she continued. “You’ve shown that you’re never going to let anyone forget about those victims.”
