Watch Taylor Swift And Jack Antonoff Goof Around While Writing 'This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things'

The creative process of our favorite songs from the best artists in music are usually shrouded in mystery. Being able to see songs and albums come to life via the behind the scenes work can be just as elating as listening to the end product.

With Taylor Swift's Making of a Song Series on DIRECTV Now, fans have been given just that. And with a sneak peek of the final episode in the series, it shows Swift and long time collaborator and friend Jack Antonoff in the middle of creating track No. 13 from her latest album Reputation, "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things."

The short clip shows the pair in the studio in the middle of building a choir section in the song, with Taylor on the keys, and Antonoff giving direction — the two look to be in a humorous mood, giggling playfully while also bopping to those awesome sounds. "Hit the last note … and just have it fall apart,” Antonoff says to the pop star.

Check out the clip via People below. Keep an eye out for the full episode, which will be unveiled later today.
