As promised, Taylor Swift premiered the music video for “Out of the Woods,” the latest single from her blockbuster album 1989, during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest — and it opens with her standing on a beach as vines and trees sprout through the sand around her. The rest of the video features the pop superstar in various natural settings, including a forest, a snow-covered mountaintop and even underwater — most of it while being chased by wolves.
“She lost him…but she found herself…and somehow that was everything,” a series of words flashing on a black screen read as the song ends.
The song was co-written by Bleachers rocker Jack Antonoff, who called it “one of the most important things I’ve ever been a part of.” Last year, he told TIME that working with Swift on the track was a no-brainer. “You can look at someone and get to know their music and say, ‘This is someone who I want to work with,’” he said. “It’s not rocket science if someone seems cool or great.”
