Happy almost weekend, you guys—Taylor Swift just debuted the music video of her latest single, “Lover.” The video starts with a little girl opening Christmas presents—why not, it’s almost the -ber season—including a snow globe. Inside the snow globe, Taylor and her lover’s story plays out in whimsical, monochromatic rooms, a play on the lyrics, “This is our place / We make the rules.” There’s a yellow room where they sit upside down, a blue room where they swim in a human-sized fishbowl, and a red room where conflict begins.
Watch the video below to find out the sweet resolution of the story:
When Taylor debuted the video, she quoted a familiar line: “And so it goes, you two are dancing in a snow globe round and round.” It’s a nod to the song “You Are In Love” from the album 1989.
Taylor’s lover is played by dancer Christian Owens, who said on Instagram, “Words cannot express how grateful I am [to] this woman @taylorswift [for] giving me a chance to express my talent in such a different way! Time and time again you show how caring and giving you are.”
The video was directed by Drew Kirsch, the same director of Taylor’s “You Need To Calm Down” music video.
The music video comes ahead of the Lover album release today. Check out the track list below:
