Taylor Swift is throwing it back in honor of the holiday season!
Late Thursday night, Swift dropped a new track, "Christmas Tree Farm," a nod to her childhood spent growing up on such a place in Pennsylvania.
The adorable, heartwarming track is made even more special by its accompanying video, which is a compilation of home movies from Swift's childhood Christmases.
The super sweet tune, which really checks all the boxes when it comes to what you'd want from an instant Christmastime hit, is a wonderful compliment to the nostalgia-packed video that tugs at the heartstrings with cute clips of a toddler-aged Swift playing in the show, goofing around with her brother, writing letters to Santa and unwrapping a guitar which she got as a present.
Packed with love and genuine holiday excitement, Christmas has come early for Swift fans clamoring for an X-mas tune.
Swift celebrated the song's release with a cute post on Twitter, writing, "I actually did grow up on a Christmas tree farm. In a gingerbread house, deep within the yummy gummy gumdrop forest. Where, funnily enough, this song is their national anthem. #ChristmasTreeFarm song and video out now."
The song, which Swift wrote over the weekend, was first announced on Thursday's Good Morning America. Shortly after the exciting news, Swift took to Twitter to share a video of herself asking her cats, Meredith, Benjamin, and Olivia if she should drop the track right away.
Though the felines were fairly apathetic throughout Swift's questioning, the "Lover" singer decided to drop the song anyway.
When in doubt, ask the itty bitty pretty kitty committee. When they shun you with silence, ambivalence, and judgmental brush offs... just put the song out anyway. NEW XMAS SONG AND VIDEO (made from home videos 👨👩👧👦) OUT TONIGHT #ChristmasTreeFarm 🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲 pic.twitter.com/GdlnCAKDLF
