The music video for “Lavender Haze” by Taylor Swift is right here.
Friday at 12 a.m. ET, the singer, released the music video after telling her fans on social media to “Meet me at Midnight.”
The first song on Swift’s new album, “Midnights,” is called “Lavender Haze.” It uses a phrase from the 1950s that was sometimes used to describe how it felt to be in love.
“I happened upon the phrase ‘lavender haze’ when I was watching Mad Men,” Swift said in an Instagram video after announcing the track’s title. “And I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool, and it turns out that it’s a common phrase used in the ’50s where they would just describe being in love. Like, if you were in the lavender haze, then that meant that you were in that all-encompassing love glow — and I thought that was really beautiful.”
“And I guess, theoretically, when you’re in the ‘Lavender Haze,’ you’ll do anything to stay there and not let people bring you down off of that cloud,” she added. “And I think a lot of people have to deal with this now — not just, like, quote-unquote public figures — because we live in the era of social media and if the world finds out that you’re in love with somebody, they’re gonna weigh in on it.”
The singer of “Midnights” also talked about how the song is about her relationship with actor Joe Alwyn.
“My relationship for six years, we’ve had to dodge weird rumors, tabloid stuff, and we just ignore it,” Swift explained of her trick to prolonging the couple’s honeymoon phase. “And so this song is sort of about the act of ignoring that stuff to protect the real stuff. I hope you guys like it.”
