Taylor Swift has released has an animated lyric video for her song “The Man,” which appears on her latest album Lover.
The video addresses the double standards between men and women and features an animated businesswoman appearing small next to giant, businessmen. The woman climbs a long, metaphorical corporate ladder only to discover that more obstacles await her at the top. She struggles to navigate through a series of stairs as giant men easily walk by. The woman falls but is saved by a giant woman who sets her down an easier path filled with others like her.
Swift recently moved from Sony/ATV Music publishing and signed with Universal Music Publishing Group. The move puts all of her future creative output under Universal.
