The songstress shared a clip of her “Long Live” performance from the extended version of her Eras Tour concert film, which is available now to rent at home through Apple TV+ and Prime Video, including a series of on-the-nose emojis in her caption. 

“I had the time of my life fighting dragons with youuuu 🫶 Celebrate 34 with me by watching The Eras Tour (Extended Version) including ‘Long Live’ 🐉 ‘The Archer’ 🏹 and ‘Wildest Dreams’ at home!,” she wrote. “PS troll me all you want about my excessive and literal millennial emoji use but A) no one’s prouder to be a millennial and B) it’s my bday and today I am exempt! 🎂”

The release comes on the heels of Swift’s nomination for the 81st Golden Globe Awards, with The Eras Tour Film nominated alongside BarbieGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3John Wick: Chapter 4Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part OneOppenheimerSpider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and The Super Mario Bros. Movie in the category of Cinematic and Box-Office Achievement.

With the movie’s new extended version, Swift previously addressed the significance of releasing it on her birthday. 

“Hi!

Swift was not joined by her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, for the outing, though the couple have been spending lots of time together recently. Swift attended Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs game over the weekend and was photographed at the after-party giving her man a kiss
