Today, one of the most anticipated albums of 2017 was finally released.
To go along with the album release – which now is only available to listen to as a physical purchase, digital download or interspersed on an iHeartRadio stream – Swift also is selling two magazines she compiled, featuring some of her own poetry, watercolor paintings and lots of behind-the-scenes photographs of the singer filming the music videos, hanging out at home with her cats and posing for fashion photo shoots. Well, first of all, yes, we can assume there will definitely be a tour thanks to her collaboration with Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan, which aims to give fans better access to tickets.
“Don’t read the last page/ But I stay when it’s hard or it’s wrong or we’re making mistakes/ I want your midnights/ But I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s Day”, she sang. At the close of the song, Swift joked about making a smooth transition and made her way to the grand piano at the center of the fishbowl.
As Taylor Swift’s Reputation continues to get dissected on its release day (November 10), the discoveries and interpretations are endless.
Speculation was only driven further when Swift, notable social media creeper, responded to a fan on Tumblr that “only 300 people know”, implying that she told fans at the secret listening parties.
Rather than play another Reputation track after “New Year’s Day”, Swift played a attractive rendition of Tom Petty’s “American Girl”, opting to take it slower and remain seated at the piano. Swift’s parents, Andrea and Scott, were both in attendance and hung out until the meet and greet ended, along with publicist-pal Tree Paine.
