“The Man” is getting a music video courtesy of Taylor Swift.
On Tuesday, Swift announced a premiere date for the song’s official visuals on Instagram. “The Man” music video will launch Thursday at 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT.
Swift announced she will live-chat with fans on YouTube one hour before the video premiere: “I’m going to be chatting/answering your questions/mansplaining the video.”
Previously, Swift released a stripped-back live performance of the song filmed in Paris. The acoustic version was filmed during her performance at the “2019 City of Lover” concert in September.
The show was held at the iconic L’Olympia Bruno Coquatrix, with Swift also performing Lover songs “Death By A Thousand Cuts” and “Cornelia Street”, as well as her smash hit “You Need To Calm Down” and the album’s title track.
Despite the majority of fans loving the release, others begged Swift to release an actual music video for “The Man”.
Swift’s video comes after she spoke to Billboard about the feminist track.
“It was a song that I wrote from my personal experience, but also from a general experience that I’ve heard from women in all parts of our industry,” Swift shared. “I think that the more we can talk about it in a song like that, the better off we’ll be in a place to call it out when it’s happening.”
“So many of these things are ingrained in even women, these perceptions, and it’s really about re-training your own brain to be less critical of women when we are not criticizing men for the same things.”
