Taylor Swift releases music video for holiday song 'Christmas Tree Farm'

But it wasn't just a new Christmas song that she released - no, there's a music video, too, and it is entirely made up of home movies.

Taylor Swift has announced her first original Christmas song in over a decade.

Taylor Swift fans have been given an early Christmas present, with the pop superstar today releasing a brand new song.

"I know this is pretty wild, but I've just written a Christmas song". When they shun you with silence, ambivalence, and judgmental brush offs... just place the song out anyway.

Taylor Swift hasn't lived in Pennsylvania since she was 14, but her childhood home in Reading still has a lasting place in her life. As images of young Swift and her little brother, Austin, flash across the screen, a bright, festive tune blares - string instruments strumming and jingle bells chiming. (Her date of birth is December 13, 1989.) Also, the blurry November 23 footage is just of some horses in a snowy field - hardly crucial.

After the music's debut, Swift headed to Twitter to acknowledge her upbringing in a sugary wonderland trend.

In 2017, the singer's social media accounts had gone dark shortly before the release of her sixth (and arguably most anticipated) album, Reputation.

"Christmas Tree Farm" is available to stream and download now.

The cats were not much help to the singer, who ultimately decided that she didn't want to wait another year to release her new music. The hitmaker wrote the song on Dec. 1 and launched it on Midnight, Dec. 6. In other words, it's representing a memory or moment Swift, amid a song filled with said holiday memories and moments, couldn't actually have first hand.
