Go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, spread the news, people: Taylor Swift’s music video for her new hit single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is live.
The video — which starts off with Swift clad in squirrel-print pajamas — follows the lyrics video for the same song that came out August 14, and premiered simultaneously on MTV and CMT Thursday night during a mini-special called “MTV First: Taylor Swift.” The show also included an interview with the 22-year-old musician. West coasters eager to see TSwift on the tube, can still see the video and interview when it airs at 7:49 p.m. PT.
In the interview, which continued via live stream on MTV.com, the country pop princess announced that she will perform “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 6.
“What the fans have done with this song and made it into in two weeks is so great, so I’m so excited to perform it at the VMAs,” Swift said during the MTV interview.
To watch the song accompanied by plenty of black-framed glasses, a party in a house with sweater-like walls and Swift’s band members in forest-animal costumes, check out the music video below:
Update: If the above embedded video does not work, the music video is available to view on MTV.com.
The new music video reunites Swift with director Declan Whitebloom, who also helmed the production of her videos for “Mean” and “Ours.” The whole video is one continuous shot featuring four quickie costume changes by Ms. TSwift.
Swift told MTV, “At one point I had a breaking point where I was like, ‘I can’t do that many costume changes in that short amount of time!’ But we actually ended up being able to do it.”
The single, which shot to the number one spot on iTunes at lightning speed earlier this month, will be on Swift’s fourth album, Red, coming out on Oct. 22.
