The singer commissioned artist Kelsey Montague to create a mural full of hints about her new single "Me!" which she released on Friday. She posed in front of the mural on Thursday, ahead of the song's debut, and said that it was full of clues about her new work, including a cat, hearts and rainbows. "So... @kelseymontagueart helped me pull off the best surprise clue reveal today in Nashville!!" Swift wrote on Instagram. "Thank you to everyone who showed up, I’ve never been more proud of your FBI level detective skills."

Swift has been a fan of Montague's for years, and said she chose her to help bring this vision to life because Montague painted one of Swift's "favorite murals in New York" which she posed in front of in 2014 (see slide 5).
