Swift released the music video for one of her favourite songs on the album, 'Anti Hero'. She also announced that she wrote and directed the video. 

"The Anti-Hero video is HERE, which I wrote and directed. Watch my nightmare scenarios and intrusive thoughts play out in real time, with some help from the excellent @birbigs, @bejohnce, and @maryelizabethellis who fabulously portray… get ready for it… my grown sons and daughter in law? Anyway. Forever grateful to my incredible DP @the_rinayang and our amazing crew," Swift wrote on Instagram. 

Speaking about the song previously, Swift said it allowed her to be vulnerable about her insecurities. 

"Track 3, 'Anti Hero' is one of my favourite songs I've ever written. I don't think I've delved this far into my insecurities in this detail before. I struggle a lot with the idea that my life has become unmanageably sized, and not to sound too dark, I struggle with the idea of not feeling like a person," she said.
