Taylor Swift has unveiled more information about 'Snow On The Beach', calling Lana Del Rey “one of the best musical artists ever".
Last week, the singer-songwriter sent the internet into a tailspin when she announced the sole feature on 'Midnights', the 'Summertime Sadness' musician has joined forces with Taylor on track four.
In the lead-up to her tenth studio album – which drops on October 21 – the 'All Too Well' songstress has been drip-feeding us coveted information about the tracks that explore "13 sleepless nights" from her life.
In her latest 'Behind The Song' video, she spoke all about 'Snow On The Beach' and what it was like working with Lana – we're already counting down the days until we get to hear this tune!
Taylor Swift praises Lana Del Rey as she talks about their collaboration track on new album
She started off the Instagram video by introducing the track: " I can’t get through that sentence without grinning because I’m such a big fan of Lana Del Rey."
Later on, in the clip she showered the 'Video Game' musician with adoration, saying: “Lana Del Rey, in my opinion, is one of the best musical artists ever, and the fact that I get to exist at the same time as her is an honour and a privilege."
Taylor continued: "And the fact that she would be so generous as to collaborate with us on this song is something I’m gonna be grateful for – for life!"
"Absolutely love her," an over-joyed Swift said.
The pop icon introduced the moody-sounding song, revealing that it's “about falling in love with someone at the same time as they’re falling in love with you."
In true Taylor fashion, she eloquently described the track: "Sort of in this sort of cataclysmic, fated moment where you realise someone feels exactly the same way that you feel."
We're hooked already!
The 32-year-old explained the meaning behind the track title: "'Wait, is this real? Is this a dream?’… Kind of like it would be if you were to see snow falling on a beach.”
The video is the latest in a series of 'Behind The Song' segments Taylor has been releasing as the 'Midnights' release date approaches, so far we've been treated to videos about track one, 'Lavendar Haze', and track three, 'Anti-Hero' – so just 10 more to go!
