Surprise! Taylor Swift Teases New Song ‘Ready for It’ — and the Fans Are Already Loving It

Posted on

Taylor Swift may have been busy serving as a bridesmaid to her best friend Abigail Anderson on Saturday night, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have time to drop a surprise on her Swifties.

Swift, 27, gave a preview of new music off her forthcoming Reputation album during the Florida State vs. Alabama football game on ESPN. A full minute of her new song, “Ready for It,” plays in the teaser which was used as a hype song leading into the game. (“Look What You Made Me Do” was also used as a hype song in promos for the game earlier in the week.)

The song was also featured in a preview for ABC’s fall season that was released on Saturday night. The song is cut between clips of different hit ABC shows, like Scandal and Designated Survivor, to tease their upcoming seasons.

This isn’t the first time Swift, 27, has shared her new music through ABC promos — shortly after she premiered her latest single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” on Aug. 25 the song was quickly featured in a teaser for the network’s TGIT programming.

Listen to the ESPN teaser below and see a sampling of the lyrics.

Are you ready for it?
Baby, let the games begin
The games begin
The games begin
(Are you ready for it?)
So baby, let the games begin
The games begin
The games begin
(Are you ready for it?)
Are you ready for it?

I-I-I see how this is gonna go
Touch me and you’ll never be alone
I-Island breeze, lights down low
No one has to know

In the middle of the night, in my dreams (my dreams)
You should see the things we do (we do), baby (baby, mmm)
In the middle of the night in my dreams (my dreams)
I know I’m gonna be with you
So, I take my time
In the middle of the night

So, baby let the games begin
The games begin
The games begin
(Are you ready for it?)
So, baby let the games begin
The games begin
The games begin
(Are you ready for it?)

Naturally, Swift’s fans were already excited by the tease of the new song.

The song — which will be the first track listing on Swift’s new album — will also begin airing in full on iHeartRadio stations starting at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

Reputation — which is Swift’s sixth album and her first since 2014 — will be released on Nov. 10.
