World News – GB – Taylor Swift is the new soundtrack of the Biden-Harris campaign


One more day before the presidential election, Taylor Swift knows America is not out of the woods yet

The Democratic Party launched a new campaign ad on Friday for former Vice President Joe Biden and California Sen Kamala Harris to present Swift’s song « Only the Young » in an effort to engage young voters

The short excerpt opens with a message from Harris asking the question, « Why are so many powerful people trying to make it difficult for us to vote? » before embarking on a montage to the tune of Swift’s 2020 « Miss Americana » anthem

« It keeps me awake, the look on your face / The moment you heard the news, » she sings as images of people’s tearful reactions to the 2016 presidential election results parade on the screen « You’re screaming inside / You’re frozen in time / You did everything you could do »

The following is a visual summary of the past four years: Tarana Burke, founder of #MeToo, leading a protest, COVID-19 hospitalizations, migrant children suffering at the US-Mexican border, infamous ‘Je m’ jacket mad ”by First Lady Melania Trump, Amy Coney Barrett confirmation, police violence against Black Lives Matter protesters and forest fires ravaging California

« They won’t help us / Too busy helping themselves », Swift sings « They won’t change this / We have to do it ourselves / They think it’s over / But this has only just begun / Only one thing can save us / Only young people « 

Watch the slide show of Americans showing off their “I voted” stickers and going to the polls; young activists mobilizing against firearms and police violence; crowds marching for LGBTQ pride; and snapshots of American heroes such as Georgia Rep John Lewis and Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg fight for change

“You’ve been walking for four years,” says the ad “Now it’s time to run #ClimateChangeIsReal #Good Trouble #MeToo #BlackLivesMatter #WeThePeople #ICantBreathe #NovemberIsComing #TheRemedyIsUsNow #EndGunViolence # 1619 #Juneteask # 1619 #Junete EnoughIsEnough # BidenHarris2020 « 

Shortly after Rep Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) shared the clip on Twitter, Harris retweeted it with words of gratitude for him and Swift

« Thank you @TaylorSwift and my friend @EricSwalwell for showing young people what is at stake in this election, » she wrote in her tweet, which has garnered over 112,000 likes

After coming under fierce criticism for remaining silent in 2016, Swift has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration and supporter of the Biden-Harris ticket in 2020 Last month – unsurprisingly – she officially endorsed the Democratic candidates in an interview with V Magazine

« The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA community deserves to be recognized and included, ”she told V

« Everyone deserves a government that takes the risks to global health seriously and puts the lives of its citizens first The only way to start making a difference is to choose leaders who are ready to face the challenge to these problems and find ways to solve them »

Her song « Only the Young » was originally featured in her 2020 Netflix documentary, « Miss Americana, » which saw the artist regret not speaking out against Trump four years ago

« But I can’t change that », she tells her family and her publicity team « I have to do it I need you to forgive me for doing it – because I do it »

I spoke to @vmagazine about why I will vote for Joe Biden for President So fit he came out on the night of the VP debate I will watch and support @KamalaHarris shouting a lot on TV And I also have custom cookies 🍪💪😘 📷 @inezandvinoodh picTwittercom / DByvIgKocr
