April 2, 2021: It’s no coincidence that Taylor Swift—queen of clues and teasers—dropped Easter eggs on Good Friday, ahead of the release of her highly anticipated album, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version),” set to drop on Friday, April 9. If you have yet to see the 11-time Grammy winner’s Instagram post, the 30-second video contains a series of fast-flashing anagrams for internet sleuths to solve. Unsurprisingly, they stepped up to the challenge and flocked to Twitter to figure out the post’s hidden meaning.
“The vault door is about to be as unhinged as you’ll think I am after you watch this video,” Swift teased in the Instagram post’s accompanying caption. “Level: Expert. Happy decoding!”
Swifties made headway just minutes after the hitmaker posted the video. They quickly decoded “You All Over Me (feat. Maren Morris)” in the anagrams, which is the first of six new bonus songs (AKA “From the Vault” tracks), debuting on the singer’s rerecorded 2008 album. Swift released the duet into the world exactly a week ago, alerting fans about it a day in advance. “HI,” she tweeted on Wednesday, March 24. “I wanted to let you know that the first “From the Vault” song I’m releasing from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) comes out tomorrow at midnight eastern. It’s called You All Over Me (From The Vault).”
Now that you’ve listened, let’s dive back into the Easter Egg video that’s breaking the internet. In addition to uncovering the already-released track, Fans also spelled out Keith Urban from “TEKHI” and “RUNBA,” and they’re convinced that a duet is coming. Additionally, they’ve come up with five other bonus tracks titled “We Were Happy,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “That’s When, “Don’t You,” and “Mr. Perfectly Fine.” Neither Swift nor her team have yet to confirm whether these track titles are accurate, but we’re willing to bet that they are. After all, serious Swifties don’t play around.
In a Good Morning America segment aired in February, the singer gave more insight into her rerecorded sophomore album. “My version of Fearless will have 26 songs on it because I’ve decided to add songs from the vault, which are songs that almost made the original Fearless album,” she said. “I’ve now gone back and recorded those so that everybody will be able to hear, not only the songs that made the album but the songs that almost made it. The full picture.” We’re ready, Taylor.
