Taylor Swift’s latest cinematic music video for her 1989 album was unveiled on New Year’s Eve evening, as the sweeping “Out Of The Woods” became her sixth sweeping clip from the full-length on Thursday night (Dec. 31).
“Out Of The Woods” is a more conceptually simplistic visual than the videos for songs like “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood,” with Swift navigating various terrains (blizzards, mountains, jungles, a forest fire) while outrunning a pack of ravenous wolves. The video ends with Swift discovering another version of herself staring at the ocean.
What is this, Multiplicity? Hello no—it’s way more meaningful! “She lost him. But she found herself and somehow that was everything,” the clip ends.
“Out Of The Woods” is the sixth single from 1989, and the five preceding radio offerings—“Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Style,” “Bad Blood” and “Wildest Dreams”—all reached the Top 10 of the Hot 100 chart. “Woods” was co-written with Jack Antonoff of fun. and Bleachers.
