The colorful music video features a number of unique shots of Swift and Dessner, while the hand-written lyrics are also featured prominently.

The song is clearly about a relationship, with someone trying to get a ‘renegade’ to let their guard down.

‘Is it insensitive for me to say/Get your s**t together/So I can love you/Is it really your anxiety/That stops you from giving me everything/Or do you just not want to?’ Swift sings.

‘While we were making folklore and evermore last year, @taylorswift and I sometimes talked about experimenting and writing songs together some day for @bigredmachinejv,’ Dessner began. 

‘Making music with your friends just to make it — that’s how Big Red Machine started and has grown — and that’s how Renegade came about too,’ he added. 

‘This song was something we wrote after we finished evermore and it dawned on us that this was a BRM song. Taylor’s words hit me so hard when I heard her first voice memo and still do, every time,’ he added.

Friends: 'Making music with your friends just to make it -- that's how Big Red Machine started and has grown -- and that's how Renegade came about too,' he added

‘The feeling and sound of this song feel very much at the heart of ‘How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last?’ I’m so grateful to Taylor for continuing to share her incredible talent with me and that we are still finding excuses to make music together,’ he concluded.
