Taylor Swift releases new Christmas song she apparently wrote over the weekend

Talk about a swift turnaround.

Taylor Swift on Friday dropped a brand new Christmas song, "Christmas Tree Farm," also putting out a music video for the song made up of home movies.

Relying mostly on old footage for this music video makes sense considering the song supposedly didn't even exist one week ago. When Good Morning America exclusively revealed Thursday that Swift was set to release a Christmas song, it also reported that she actually "wrote it over the weekend, turning it around in record time." Clearly, Swift was not ready to calm down over the Thanksgiving break.

"Okay, I know this is pretty wild, but I've just written a Christmas song," Swift said in a video on Thursday. "I feel like it's weird to just like wait a year to put it out."

The song is now available to stream on Spotify, and you can watch the music video below. Brendan Morrow
