Just before her new album dropped, Taylor Swift premiered the song “New Year’s Day,” from Reputation. Being a superstar, Swift premiered it in a super way, during the Nov. 9 airing of ABC’s hit show Scandal.

The performance took place in October at Swift’s seaside home in Rhode Island. To make the performance more intimate, she personally selected 100 fans to join her around the piano as she played and sang.
