Taylor Swift’s last music video — “Look What You Made Me Do” — caused some controversy, featuring messages about Calvin Harris, Kim Kardashian, and Tom Hiddleston.

For the musician’s latest music video, Swift has taken to the streets of London, riding around on the night bus, cycling across the Millennium Bridge, and visiting a local pub.

One notable stopping point included Kentish Delight, a Kebab shop located in Kentish Town, North London.

The video pays homage to Swift’s latest British boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, best know for playing the titular character in Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk.

A source close to Swift told The Telegraph: "The video shows Taylor on a night out. All of the locations are places she has been to with Joe.

"She has spent months quietly going under the radar in London this year and has been out a lot more than anybody realises.

"It is quite telling that she has been hanging out in these regular and unexpected places... She wants to show people she is just a normal girl.”

The shoot, which involved over 60 people, was shot between 9pm and 6am. According to the source, nobody was allowed phones on set as to prevent the song leaking.

Reputation — the singer’s sixth album, featuring the track “Look What You Made Me Do” — reaches stores 10 November.
