Taylor Swift unveiled the music video for ‘Fortnight' featuring Post Malone, from her newly released album ‘The Tortured Poets Department.' The song, a heartfelt narrative of love and freedom, serves as the lead single from the highly anticipated album, which Swift surprised fans with on Friday.

In the music video, Swift and Post Malone portray former lovers, with Post Malone's character endeavoring to rescue Swift from what seems to be her emotional struggles. Throughout the video, Swift wears matching face tattoos reminiscent of Post Malone's, while scenes of defiance and broken glass symbolize her journey to overcome inner turmoil.

Reflecting on the video's creation, Swift shared on Instagram, “When I was conceptualizing the ‘Fortnight' music video, I wanted to visually convey the worlds I envisioned while creating this music... The video beautifully captures the essence of this album and the stories it tells.” She also thanked Post Malone for his commitment to their collaboration.

The video features appearances by Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles, iconic stars of Dead Poets Society, playing enigmatic scientists conducting mysterious experiments with Swift as their subject.

Swift had teased the video's release earlier in the week, creating excitement among fans by sharing glimpses of its themes and hinting at its imminent arrival on social media.

‘The Tortured Poets Department,' Swift's eleventh studio album, includes 16 tracks. Additionally, she surprised fans by releasing a ‘secret double album' extension titled ‘The Anthology,' featuring an additional 15 songs.

The album's reception was groundbreaking, breaking records on Spotify shortly after its release. Swift became Spotify's most-streamed artist in a single day, while ‘The Tortured Poets Department' became the platform's most-streamed album within 24 hours.

Swift's announcement of the album at the Grammy Awards earlier this year had fans eagerly anticipating the culmination of her creative endeavors. With ‘The Tortured Poets Department,' Swift invites listeners into a world of deep emotion and self-reflection.
