"Christmas Tree Farm", released Thursday, comes with a shiny music video - compiled from the Swift family's festive home movies from years gone by. She'll release it with a homemade video starring her cats, Meredith, Benjamin and Olivia. With captions "When in doubt, ask the itty bitty pretty kitty committee".
Sharing the video on her Twitter page, the Shake It Off star wrote: "I actually did grow up on a Christmas tree farm. I don't have anyone to ask right now except for..."
With just a few weeks until the big day, Taylor Swift has dropped a Christmas song that could knock festive favourite Michael Buble off the charts.
Taylor Swift has announced she is releasing a new Christmas song.
"I feel like it's weird to just wait a year to put it out. So". The post was captioned, "I don't know what else to do".
Opening up about her home to her former label in 2013, Taylor said: "I grew up on a farm. Or you'll be punished". While most probably glossed over the seemingly innocuous date, Swift's ardent fans honed in on it, noting that she wasn't born on November 23, 1989.
The up-tempo, nearly four-minute music options footage courting again to 1989, the 12 months she was born, on December 13. Squad members have included Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Gigi Hadid and Lena Dunham, among others. Naturally, they ignore her questioning, flopping down and grooming themselves as Swift continues to talk.
It included covers of songs like twangy variations of "Santa Baby" and "Silent Night", a fiddle- and mandolin-infused rendition of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas", and a perky model of "Last Christmas" by Wham! duo George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. She also was honoured as Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards.
