MORE than three months after gifting us with the celeb-packed “Bad Blood” video at the Billboard Music Awards, another Taylor Swift production is on its way.

The pop star teased her newest music video, “Wildest Dreams,” on Twitter Sunday night with a 15-second mashup of clips from the vid. While the full-length version hasn’t yet been viewed, here are six things we know about it thus far.

1 It will debut at the VMAs

Taylor is a savvy businesswoman, and after seeing how successful debuting “Bad Blood” at the Billboard Music Awards was, it’s no doubt she decided to re-create the magic. Her new video will air on MTV during the Video Music Awards preshow on Sunday, Aug. 30.

2 It stars Clint Eastwood’s hunky son

Scott Eastwood, a 29-year-old model and actor, rose to fame in late 2013 after a steamy Town & Country photoshoot went viral. Since then, he’s starred in “Fury,” “The Longest Ride” and even has a role in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” flick — and now, he can add a Taylor Swift music video to his growing resumé. (Though truth be told, he’s much sexier than the British pop star the song is allegedly based on …)

3 It’s (maybe) about Harry Styles

Relationships-gone-bad is standard fodder for Swift songs, and “Wildest Dreams” is no different. Memories of a once-happy couple are rife in the pop star’s song, which borders on the edge of “Fifty Shades”-worthy lyrics with the lines, “No one has to know what we do/His hands are in my hair/His clothes are in my room.” No wonder Styles is such a ladies’ man.

4 It’s directed by Joseph Kahn

Swift’s quick clip includes a movie clapper with the name G. Musterhausen under the “Director” credit. That name, though, is just an alias — director Joseph Kahn outed himself on Twitter Monday after the rumour mill went wild.

Swift is no stranger to Kahn’s work — he directed the “Blank Space” music video as well. Some of his other credits include Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” Brandy and Monica’s “The Boy is Mine,” Sugar Ray’s “Someday,” Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin’,” Enrique Iglesias’ “Hero,” Katy Perry’s “Waking Up in Vegas,” and Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.” Pretty impressive, no?

5 It’s set in Africa

As if Kahn’s major truth bomb weren’t enough, we got the impression “Wildest Dreams” was set on the continent from all the shots of zebras running through the tundra. “Wildest Dreams,” wild animals — get it?

6 It takes place in the 1950s

Another hint from the same movie clapper includes the date 8-2-1950, an era not yet conquered by Swift, who most recently portrayed a dystopian future in “Bad Blood.” Will the singer be able to adapt to such a different time period?
