BEIJING, Aug. 20 (Xinhuanet)-- Singer Taylor Swift premiered single “Shake It Off”,the first single of her much-anticipated fifth album.
The 24-year-old singer wrote and produced the song with songwriter Max Martin and record producer Karl Johan Schuster, known professionally as Shellback. Max Martin and Shellback created hit songs “I Knew You Were Trouble”and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
The team’s goal was to create something that sounded like nothing Swift had done, she said during her live stream on Yahoo on Monday.
The date of new song release was creatively hinted in Taylor Swift’s Instagram video of the singer repeatedly pushing the “18” button in an elevator.
The video for “Shake it Off”was directed by Mark Romanek, known for Johnny Cash's “Hurt” and Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson's “Scream” videos. The new album, called “1989”, will come out in October.
