Taylor Swift ‘Safe and Sound’ Video Preview Released
Monday at 7:54PM ET, Taylor Swift will premiere her ‘Safe and Sound’ video from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack. If you don’t think you can wait that long, we’ve got good news and bad news for you. The good news is that MTV posted a preview of the video today, and the bad news is that it’s less than 10 seconds long. Still, it gives you a quick glimpse at what you can expect to see on Monday.
The video, which features the Civil Wars, shows Swift looking very natural with her hair down and not overly styled. She’s wearing a cream-colored lace dress that makes her look like she’s from another time, and it’s beautiful yet strikingly simple. And her makeup is very toned down, as well. Wandering through the barren winter woods, Swift looks almost hesitant, walking among leafless brown trees and crunched leaves. The clip also shows a split second of the Civil Wars’ John Paul White and Joy Williams strumming instruments with the light from a fire playing on their faces.
The media conglomerate Viacom is joining forces with Swift to debut the video in the first-ever MTV global music video premiere, and the company said earlier this week that they expect the video to hit as many as 600 million households at once. All at once it will air on MTV in the the U.S., Europe, Latin America, Africa, Australia, Asia and Canada.
Swift is also slated to perform at the 2012 Grammy Awards on Sunday, when she’ll see what comes of her three current nominations. She received nods from the Recording Academy for Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song for ‘Mean,’ and Best Country Album for ‘Speak Now.’
Catch the premiere of ‘Safe and Sound’ on Monday, Feb. 13.
