Taylor Swift to Premiere 'Mine' Video Worldwide on August 27
On July 20, Taylor appeared on a live chat to announce the October 25 release date of her new album, 'Speak Now,' and give details about her first single from the record, 'Mine.' The 20-year-old revealed that the song is about her "pattern of sort of running away when it comes time to fall in love" and "finding the exception to that."
In the video, Taylor plays a bride, who is set to marry her handsome groom, played by British actor Toby Hemingway. Although Taylor has acting credits to her name, she still thought it was "a little strange" to be married on camera. "I get to wear big dresses and wear white all the time on the carpet, but there's nothing quite like actually pretending you're getting married," she told People about the video shoot.
'Mine' was set to be unveiled on August 16, but an online leak prompted Tay's label to release the single 12 days early. Still, the song debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs chart, and helped the 20-year-old become the second female artist to debut multiple tracks in the Top 5 on Billboard's Hot 100 in the same year. %Poll-51419%
