The first music video from the recently released Midnights is here and it's full of clones, giant Taylor Swifts, glittery purple blood, ghosts, and a hilarious scene from Swift's future funeral featuring comedic actors Mike Birbiglia, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and John Early. It makes sense that the very first music video Swift shared was for the song, "Anti-Hero," which the singer has called one of her favorite songs she's ever written.
"Track three 'Anti-Hero' is one of my favorite songs I've ever written," she told iHeartRadio. "I really don't think I've delved this far into my insecurities in this detail before. You know, I struggle a lot with the idea that, you know, my life has become unmanageable. Um, not to sound too dark, but I just struggle with the idea of not feeling like a person."
Swift continued, "Like, don't feel bad for me. You don't need to. But this song really is a guided tour throughout all the things I tend to hate about myself. We all hate things about ourselves and it's all of those aspects of the things we dislike and like about ourselves that we have to come to terms with if we're gonna be this person. So yeah, I like and to hear a lot because I think it's really honest."
Before the album dropped at midnight on Friday, October 21st, Swift surprised fans by announcing that there will be a music video for every track on the album. She also revealed that another 7 new songs would be added to a deluxe version of the album called Midnights (3am Edition). The second music video is scheduled to drop on October 24th, although Swift has yet to announce which song it will be for.
