Video Premiere: Taylor Swift’s “Mine”

by (@unclegrambo)

It’s finally here! After showing you a :30 sneak one week ago and taking you behind the scenes yesterday, we’re excited to debut the first music video from Taylor Swift’s latest album, “Mine.” Whereas most of the songs on her last album had a distinctly autobiographical feel, this single shows Taylor extending her storytelling prowess to the third person.

This glossy pop number tells the (not always sunshine-y!) story of how romance changed a “careless man’s careful daughter” into a “rebel”; unlike some of her breezy teenage tales from the past, this song has the narrator singing about fights at 2:30 in the morning and stressing out about “paying the bills.” We’re excited to see Taylor stretching her creative muscles and taking her music in a slightly new direction (lyrically if not sonically), all the while ensuring not to offend her base (as you might expect, the song ends with true love conquering all).

So, what did you think of the song and the video? Be sure and let us know in the comments below! Oh, and when you do, don’t forget to check out the new behind-the-scenes clip of the video shoot that we’ve posted below.
