The 'Begin Again' star promises her new video explores a more "edgy" side to her character.
Taylor Swift has teased her music video for new single 'I Knew You Were Trouble' and promises it is "unlike anything we've done before" as well as saying it focuses on a "really toxic" relationship.
The upcoming video, set to premiere later today (13th December) on the singer's 23rd birthday, stars Taylor opposite actor Reeve Carney, and follows their "epic" romance as well as focusing on the negative implications it has.
"We've been all over the place just kind of building the story of these two people who have this really epic, really toxic relationship," Taylor revealed to MTV News ahead of the premiere. "This video is edgy because the narrative of it is edgy."
In a brand new teaser released ahead of the video's premiere, Taylor is seen waking up in an unknown wasteland after what looks to have been a massive party, while showing off a new pink hairstyle.
"The song sounds different than anything else I've ever done before, so I thought why not make this video unlike anything we've done before."

The 'Begin Again' singer went on to say that the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' is about the corrupting influence her love interest has on her, after influencing her to change everything about herself.
"We knew we wanted it to be some sort of corruption," Taylor explained. "Good girl is living her life, going on about her life and all of a sudden she runs into this force.
"This guy is just like a force. She'll do anything to fit into his world, including change about herself."
Taylor Swift's music video for 'I Knew You Were Trouble', the latest release from her 2012 album 'Red', is set to premiere today.
