It’s Friday, time for some “Fortnight” fun!

Taylor Swift released her first music video from her latest album, “The Tortured Poets Department.”

The musician, who is 34 years old, surprised fans by releasing her new music overnight on Friday. She even treated them to a double album, with a second batch of songs dropping at 2 a.m.

The track includes Post Malone and speculates that it may be related to Matty Healy, given the meaning of “Fortnight” as two weeks.

After ending her six-year relationship with Joe Alwyn, she had a brief romance with the lead singer of the band 1975.

Taylor Swift and Post Malone have had several encounters since 2018.

“I was supposed to be sent away, but they forgot to come and get me. I was a functioning alcoholic until nobody noticed my new aesthetic,” she sings.

“I just wanted to express my concern for your well-being, but it seems like you are the cause of the problem.

I don’t want to assign blame, but what about your secretive betrayal?” she continues. “And we spent two weeks constantly rushing to see you.”

The music video starts with a scene of several desks and typewriters clicking. Swift reclines on a bed suspended from the ceiling in an all-white room. She is adorned in a garter and a wedding gown that brings to mind her iconic Grammys 2024 dress.

In the video, Swift and Malone (without any face tattoos) are seen dressed in black, typing away. They share an embrace amidst a flurry of paper floating in the air.

Additionally, the video shows the “So Long, London” singer being tested in a lab, with none other than actors Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles.

Hawke and Charles both appeared in the 1989 film “Dead Poets Society,” which seems to be a deliberate reference to her album title.

While working on the Fortnight music video, my goal was to bring to life the vivid worlds that existed in my imagination and inspired the creation of this music.

Almost everything within it is a metaphor or a nod to different aspects of the album. Swift expressed her satisfaction with the video on Instagram, stating that it perfectly captures the essence of her record and the stories she tells in it.

“@postmalone really impressed me on set as our tortured tragic hero and I’m incredibly grateful to him for his dedication to this collaboration,” she expressed.

“I can’t stop laughing after having the opportunity to work with the most amazing individuals on the planet, @ethanhawke and @mrjoshcharles (creative souls, meet your fellow artists from the nearby office, the deceased poets).”

On April 18, the artist announced that “Fortnight” would be her debut single from the upcoming album.

“I’ve always been a big fan of Post because of his incredible writing, musical exploration, and those unforgettable melodies,” Swift shared on Instagram. “I had the incredible opportunity to see that magic unfold right before my eyes when we collaborated on Fortnight.”

Malone shared that he and the other person had spent time together last year, as he mentioned in an interview with Howard Stern.

“I recently had the opportunity to spend time with her, and I must say, she is truly one of the most compassionate and thoughtful individuals I’ve ever met.

Not to mention, she is an incredibly talented songwriter.” Wow, that’s incredible! “That was absolutely amazing,” he exclaimed at the time.

In February, she, like millions of others, witnessed Malone’s performance of “America the Beautiful” at Super Bowl 58 in Las Vegas, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers faced off. Swift’s boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, won the championship.

“The Tortured Poets Department” consists of 31 tracks, which, according to Swifties, contain numerous hidden references to Alwyn, Healy, John Mayer, and others.
