Are you ready for it, Taylor Swift fans?
AT&T announced the superstar’s latest venture with the telecommunications company and DirecTV called The Making of a Song on Wednesday. The new series will premiere on Taylor Swift Now on Monday, Nov. 13. Taylor Swift Now is only available on the AT&T video platforms DIRECTV NOW, DIRECTV and U-verse.
The Making of a Song will give an unprecedented look at the writing process behind Swift's highly anticipated new album, Reputation. The series will feature personal videos made entirely by the singer.
The trailer for the series gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the writing, recording and production process during the making of the the singer's sixth studio album, which will be released Nov. 10. Clips in the 30-second trailer show Swift singing, dancing and working with frequent collaborators like Jack Antonoff while in the recording studio. The first two singles from the album, “Look What You Made Me Do” and “…Ready For It?,” are featured in the clip.
In addition to the trailer, AT&T also released a 10-minute video of Swift writing her latest single, “Gorgeous." The video features Swift writing the song on both the piano and guitar over a number of days. The evolution of the songwriting process is revealed as lyrics that once went, “I’ve got a boyfriend, he’s older than us. I haven’t seen him in a couple of months,” ended up as the finalized lyrics of “I’ve got a boyfriend, he’s older than us. He’s in the club doing, I don’t know what.”
The video comes to an end with Swift in the studio performing the song acoustically for co-writers Max Martin and Shellback as they give their feedback. The song’s official lyric video featuring the finalized version of the song is featured at the end of the clip.
The Making of a Song follows the megastar’s previous announcement in mid-October about her new app, The Swift Life. The free app functions as a social network for fans and allows users to "collect Taymojis, stickers, pics and more," while keeping up with the latest news about Swift.
