It's been over a year since the release of Taylor Swift's 1989 album, but that doesn't stop the hit singles off the album from getting their time to shine! "Out of the Woods" — one of the first songs to be released to the public from her 1989 album — is now officially set to join her five other previously released singles with it's very own music video debut (and, hopefully, yet another spot on the Billboard charts). The "Out of the Woods" music video will premiere at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest, in order to help kick off 2016. However, will Harry Styles be in the "Out of the Woods" music video? Considering that "Out of the Woods" is supposedly about Swift's relationship with Harry, I wouldn't be surprised to see him. Or, at least, some kind of reference to one of her most famous exes.
The New York City-based celebration begins at 8 p.m. EST, and, sometime between then and the ball-drop, Taylor Swift will grace our screens with what I expect to be another visually-intriguing video. While the lyrics in the song itself seem to reference Styles quite a bit — including lyrics referring to their relationship being "last December" and their matching necklaces referenced in the line "your necklace hanging from my neck" — we do know that she loves to sneak in subtle hints in any way that she can. And to premiere a video during one of the most-watched New Year's Eve celebrations on television? Well, that's one way to leave a message to a pretty large audience, while also being sure to get Harry's attention — no matter where he is in the world! And where will he be? Headlining Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve along with the rest of One Direction. Coincidence? I think not.
Now, I'm not saying that Styles himself might appear in the video. That may be possible, but, considering that his song "Perfect" is allegedly about Swift in return, we don't know if he'd go along with one of her songs. However, considering that she tends to cast lookalikes of her exes in her music video, that's exactly what I'm expecting to find. And with the music video IMDB page not up yet, that only makes things all-the-more suspicious.
So, where will I be on New Year's Eve? Glued to my television watching the Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve special (as always), and anxiously awaiting the "Out of the Woods" music video with a notepad in hand. Because if there's Harry Styles references in play... I'm ready.
