Taylor Swift’s new song “‘Look What You Made Me Do” is getting plenty of attention due to lyrics which may or may not air petty grievances with fellow millionaires, but behind the gossip is a nifty animated lyric video with an independent film connection. The clip, which debuted on August 24, was coproduced by Swift and music video mastermind Joseph Kahn, who has worked on some interesting film projects.
Kahn made big waves online in 2015 with the short “Power/Rangers,” a violent fan film reimagining of the kids’ series, which starred James Van Der Beek. He also directed the primarily self-financed horror film “Detention,” which premiered at SXSW in 2011. But Kahn’s splashiest works are squarely in the music video world, where he’s helmed high-profile projects for Lady Gaga, Eminem, Katy Perry, and many, many more.
“‘Look What You Made Me Do” appears on Swift’s upcoming album “Reputation,” which drops on November 10. An official video for the song is set to premiere on August 27 during the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Watch the lyric video below:
