The song is featured on the album Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) (2023).
Taylor Swift has released the music video for “I Can See You” starring Taylor Lautner and Joey King. In the video, the actors break into the museum building at night to rescue Taylor Swift from imprisonment in a tightly locked cage.
The video was directed by Taylor Swift herself. This is not the first such experience for the singer: she previously shot videos for The Man, Cardigan, Willow, All Too Well, Anti-Hero, Bejeweled, Lavender Haze, and Karma. And in December 2022, it became known that Taylor Swift is preparing to become a director and is working on a film based on her own script.
Taylor Lautner is Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend: The couple dated for a few months in 2009 and the singer is rumored to have dedicated the song “Back to December” from the 2010 album Speak Now to the actor. She has also known Joey King for a long time: the actress starred in Taylor Swift’s “Mean” video – this song was also released on the “Speak Now” record. “I Can See You” also features another actress from the “Mean” video, Presley Cash.
The song “I Can See You” was released on the remastered version of “Speak Now” – “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)”, which was released on July 7th. Recall: Taylor Swift failed to secure the rights to her first six albums released on her previous Big Machine label. Therefore, the singer decided to simply re-record them again so that the rights to the old recordings would lose their value. Speak Now is Taylor Swift’s third “remastered” album, in 2021 she released “remastered” versions of “Fearless” (2008) and “Red” (2012). The singer releases all re-recorded versions of the records in an expanded format – on them you can hear not only old songs in new arrangements but also unreleased compositions “from the vault”. “I Can See You” is just one of the last.
Taylor Swift is currently touring the US as part of the Eras tour. He repeatedly got into the news: for example, at the end of June, one of the singer’s fans went to a concert with a blanket on her head so that the bosses, to whom she lied about the illness, would not recognize her. And in early July, it became known that Taylor Swift received 32 sanitary fines due to piles of garbage near her home in New York. True, many believe that the singer herself has nothing to do with it – paparazzi and fans are constantly on duty near the building.
