She’s Back! Taylor Swift Performs New Ballad ‘New Year’s Day’ on ABC’s TGIT

Posted on

TGIT, indeed.

Just hours ahead of her album release, Taylor Swift debuted a new song titled “New Year’s Day” during ABC’s TGIT programming.

Presented during a break in Scandal, the Grammy winner’s performance of the heartfelt ballad was her first performance of a new song in three years and her first television appearance promoting Reputation.

“You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi / I can tell that it’s gonna be a long road / I’ll be there if you’re the toast of the town, babe / Or if you strike out and you’re crawling home,” sings Swift on the song.

The performance was recorded during a Reputation secret session held at her Rhode Island home, and her adoring fans surrounded her while she sang the song at the piano.

Swift is a big fan of ABC’s hit show Grey’s Anatomy and even named one of her beloved cats after Ellen Pompeo’s character Meredith Grey.

Shortly after debuting her first single “Look What You Made Me Do,” the network featured the song in a teaser for their Thursday night shows.

Reputation is out at midnight on Friday.
