Taylor Swift’s ‘New Romantics’ Video Relives ‘1989’ Tour
Taylor Swift is officially putting her massively successful 1989 era to rest with the release of her final music video for current single "New Romantics."
The video, which is available exclusively on Apple Music for now and marks her seventh for the album, kicks off with Taylor declaring in a voiceover, “The fans are the best part of this tour. They’re the reason the shows are incredible, and I know those fans out there are just all in."
The clip then launches into behind-the-scenes footage of tour prep and video from the actual shows. Taylor announced its release with a tweet earlier today (April 6), writing, “the best people in life are free,” a quote from the fan favorite song, which was unjustly relegated to bonus track status on 1989.
“Looking out into an endless ocean of crowd — that was everything," she says toward the video's end. "We’re all really sad that it’s ending, but we’re really happy because of what it was."
Considering the acclaim Taylor's received upon her official foray into the pop world (1989 signaled her total departure from the country realm), it's unsurprising her final music video would highlight the past year and a half of her wild success.
Sadly, because the video is an Apple Music exclusive, we can't embed it, but we can offer you some screenshots below.
