The singer takes viewers to New Zealand and shows them how the CGI-filled visuals directed by Joseph Kahn was created.
Taylor Swift takes us to the forest and the beach in a behind-the-scenes clip for her "Out of the Woods" music video. More than a month after premiering the final version on NYE, she lets fans take a peek at how the CGI-filled visuals was brought to life.
Swift reunited with director Joseph Kahn in New Zealand for the latest "1989" video. "The entire video is basically Taylor suffering through an emotional landscape of trees and forests and snow and water, and all that is metaphor, but it's being done practically on location here in New Zealand," the helmer, who was also behind the singer's "Blank Space" and "Wildest Dreams", says in the nearly-five-minute clip.
We then get to see the 25-year-old singer, clad in various thin blue dress, filming in a swimming pool, standing in front of burning trees and on a snow-covered set, where she reveals that the dress she's wearing has been dipped in wax to make it appear frozen.
"Out of the Woods" is the latest single off Swift's "1989" album, following chart-toppers like "Shake It Off", "Blank Space", "Style", "Bad Blood" and "Wildest Dreams". The former country diva will likely perform the song, which was reportedly inspired by her relationship with ex Harry Styles, during the 2016 Grammy Awards on Monday, February 15.
