Taylor Swift debuts eye-popping music video for new single ME!

 

Taylor Swift has delivered fans her first new music since 2017’s reputation album, in the form of a brand new single called ME!

The pop superstar had been teasing today’s date across her socials for weeks, before running a live countdown on her Instagram.

And here it is, the big-budget, hyper-colourful music video to ME!, a duet with Panic! At the Disco frontman Brendon Urie:

The music video has plenty for fans to pore over: A French-language couple’s fight from Swift and Urie. A slithering serpent — the animal symbol of Swift’s last album — exploding into a swarm of butterflies, seemingly signifiying a new era is upon us. We even get to see the star clutching a cat — very on-brand.

It marks a tight turnaround for the star, who released the harder-edged reputation album less than 18 months ago. That album was met with the most mixed reviews of Swift’s career — but still sold 4.5 million copies worldwide.

Swift’s always been fond of teasing fans with clues to her new projects, and this time around it came in the form of a giant mural that sprung up on a city wall in Nashville.

After a quick call-out on Instagram, Swift today headed to the mural to pose with a horde of excited fans who’d pieced the clues together.

“I’ve never been more proud of your FBI level detective skills,” she told the assembled Swifties.
