The Grammy Award winner, 34, teased the black-and-white video for her single ‘Fortnight’, which drops Friday night, shortly after the release of her 11th studio album The Tortured Poets Department.

‘At this hearing, I stand before my fellow members of The Tortured Poets Department with a summary of my findings,’ she captioned the clip on Instagram.

She’s joined in the video by Post Malone, who also appears on the lead single.

Swift gets fully emerged in her emo era, rocking black smoky eyeliner, a matching shade of lipstick and a satin choker.

The Midnights artist pairs the glam with a strapless floor-length bustier gown and sheer gloves.

She appears to be institutionalized in the video, smashing a one-way mirror before being strapped into a bed and wearing an electric contraption on her head.

In another look, Swift served Victorian vibes in a black long-sleeve dress with ruffles and padded shoulders.

Swift donned the look while sitting at a typewriter and breaking down in tears over the pages.

Malone, 28, sported a black three-piece suit sitting at his own typewriter and clicking away.

The pair could be seen running into each other’s arms in another shot on a cloudy, deserted road.

‘I’ve been such a huge fan of Post because of the writer he is, his musical experimentation and those melodies he creates that just stick in your head forever,’ she raved.

‘I got to witness that magic come to life firsthand when we worked together on “Fortnight”,’ added Swift. 

Swift announced her upcoming album back in February while accepting her lucky 13th Grammy Award, taking home Best Pop Album for Midnights.

After telling fans she’d post the cover art backstage, the image quickly amassed more than 2 million likes in five minutes. 

In March, Swift teased that it would be her most explicit album yet, with several tracks featuring ‘curse words or language deemed sexual, violent, or offensive in nature.’

With speculation running wild online, Swifties have sniffed out apparent nods to her boyfriend Travis Kelce, as well as exes Joe Alwyn and Matty Healy.

Although the album allegedly leaked on social media earlier this week, TPD has broken Spotify’s record as the most pre-saved countdown page in the streaming platform’s history.

The TPD release comes amid a two-month break from Swift’s record-smashing Eras Tour, which resumes May 9 in France.

The Tortured Poets Department is available Thursday at midnight, and the ‘Fortnight’ music video drops Friday at 8pm ET.
