"You've marched for four years," a message in the ad reads. "Now it's time to run."


The get-out-the-vote message marks the first time that Swift authorized the use of one of her songs for a political spot. "Only the Young" originally appeared in Swift's Netflix documentary, "Miss Americana," released earlier this year. She has said she penned it following the 2018 midterm elections to help disappointed young voters "hopefully stoke some fires politically."

The 30-year-old singer has been a vocal critic of Trump, since breaking her virtually career-long silence on politics during the 2018 midterm elections. Swift tweeted to Trump earlier this year, "We will vote you out in November."

ITK hears that Swalwell is a huge and longtime fan of Swift. After Remedy PAC reached out to Swift's team earlier this week, the performer agreed to the use of "Only the Young" because its message to inspire young voters aligned with the spirit of her song.
