Taylor Swift Previews 'Reputation' Album for Fans at London Secret Sessions
They can't say much about it, but several lucky fans apparently attended Taylor Swift's first reported Reputation secret session in London Friday night (Oct. 13). There, a room full of people had the opportunity to listen to her upcoming album in its entirety, nearly a month before its Nov. 10 release date.
"Incredible," "fire," "a bop" and "so different yet so her" were among the vague yet intriguing words used to describe the unreleased album. According to one fan, there's at least one track that gave everyone all the feels: "LITERALLY EVERYONE WAS SOBBING."
Besides getting a much-coveted sneak peek of Swift's new music, those who get handpicked for the Reputation secret sessions get to meet her and, based on some snapshots, leave with a parting gift of a Reputation-era snake keychain with the city's name on it (in this case, London).
Swift introduced her fans-only secret sessions just before her last album, 1989, was released in 2014. At that time, she held special events at her places in London, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City and Westerly, R.I.
