Taylor Swift Premieres New Music Video for “Delicate”
- American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift debuted a new music video for “Delicate” during the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2018 on March 11th.
The song is taken from her sixth studio album "Reputation", which was released last November. It was written by Max Martin, Shellback and Taylor Swift, following previous fifth tracks “Cold As You,” “White Horse,” “Dear John”.
“All Too Well,” and “All You Had To Do Was Stay.”
The video was directed by Joseph Kahn and filmed in New York, in which she is receiving a mysterious note that renders her invisible, leaving her free to dance around an unidentified city in a retro fringed gown sans scrutiny.
The video has gained more than 6 million views in the first 12 hours of release.
It is said that the song is inspired from her boyfriend British actor Joe Alwyn. The track was released on March 12.
- She said of the song at iHeartRadio album "reputation" release party;
"There's an effect that you may hear on the vocals throughout the vocals on the rest of the album that is recurring, and it's a vocoder. It's a vocal effect where you sing, and the vocoder splits your voice into chords, and you can play your voice on a keyboard, in chords. So basically, if you're singing the notes of a piano, and you could play your own voice. So that's what you'll hear in the beginning, and throughout the song, and then you'll hear it several times. We tried it in the studio, and I thought it sounded really emotional, and really vulnerable, and really kind of, like, sad but beautiful. The idea of your reputation is definitely something that I play on for the entire album, but when the album starts off it's much more bombastic. It's more like, 'Oh, I don't care what you say about me, I don't care what you say about my reputation, it doesn't matter.' But then it hits this point, on track five, where it's like, oh god, what happens when you meet somebody that you really want in your life and then you start worrying about what they've heard before they met you. And you start to wonder, could something fake, like your reputation, affect something real, like somebody getting to know you? And you start to wonder, how much does all that matter? And this is the first point of vulnerability in the record where you're like, oh maybe this does actually matter a little bit. And how does that factor in, kind of questioning the reality and the perception of a reputation, and how much weight it actually has."
