Taylor Swift Out of the Woods

Taylor Swift has released the music video for Out of the Woods. Launched on New Year’s Eve, the music video picks up the theme of self discovery after a romantic break up hinted at in the track featured on her 2014 album 1989. The music video shows Swift in a blue dress in a variety of New Zealand’s outdoor locations, including a beach (Bethell’s Beach), a forest, mountains, the sea, fleeing a pack of wolves (CGI), dealing with snow, ice, heat, rain and fire. The final superimposed text: “She lost him but she found herself and somehow that was everything.”
