AceShowbiz - %cTaylor Swift% is counting down the release of "Reputation" by delivering a performance of a never-before-heard track off the album, "New Year's Day". The performance was aired during ABC's "Scandal" on November 9, a day before the release of the highly-anticipated album.
The three-minute clip finds Taylor, dressed in a simple black shirt, singing while playing a piano in a candlelit room at her Rhode Island home. A group of fans can also be seen in the clip, surrounding the 27-year-old songstress. There is a possibility that the performance was filmed during her secret listening session in Rhode Island.
Taylor's appearance on "Scandal" was confirmed shortly after she released the fourth track off the album, "Call It What You Want". The announcement was shared by news presenter %cLana Spencer% on "Good Morning America". She announced, "Remember, between 21:00 and 22:00 P.M., Taylor will perform a never-before-heard song from new album 'Reputation'." An extended version of her performance on "Scandal" will air on November 10 on Freeform.
"Reputation" is set to be released on November 10. Ahead of the release, Twitter has launched a Twitter emoji of the album, celebrating its release. The singer, of course, was the first one to use this emoji. Posting three pictures, she captioned it with the said emoji, "Waiting for #reputation like..." One of the pictures sees her taking a selfie with her cat, Meredith.
The album has yet to be released, but Taylor's label, Big Machine, is confident that it will become a big hit. The company's insiders told Billboard that the album would see first-week sales action of 2 million units. The prediction comes after the album's pre-orders has reached more than 400,000 units. The insiders added that the total number of pre-orders on iTunes alone had hit 200,000 units.
