Less than 24 hours after the release her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, Taylor Swift has dropped the music video for the opening track, “Fortnight.” Produced by perennial collaborator Jack Antonoff and featuring Post Malone, the midtempo synth-pop track revolves around former lovers who are now married to other people and living not-so-blissfully next door to each other.

Written and directed by Swift, the video takes a more metaphorical approach to the song’s subject matter. The black-and-white clip opens with the singer chained to a bedframe suspended on the wall of a lopsided prison cell. She wipes her makeup off with a cloth, revealing Post’s signature face tattoos.


Dressed in gothic, Poor Things-style attire, Swift and Post are then seen typing love letters in a sterile, Severance-coded office—a sort of relationship rehabilitation center where they’re tasked with reliving happier memories of each other. The effects-laden video concludes with Swift strapped to a gurney as the doctors (played by Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles) administer shock therapy.
