Taylor Swift has always loved to take the coy, mysterious route when announcing new music to her fans but to reveal the track list for her new album Midnights she's decided to be a bit more direct.
"I know that I have a habit of dropping cryptic clues and Easter eggs when giving you information about new music and I am not here to deny that, but I am here to defy that," Swift said in the video.
The 32-year-old introduced a new segment to her TikTok page called "Midnights Mayhem with Me" where she plans to unveil the tracklist of her new album using a bingo ball drum.

With a quick spin of the bingo ball drum, the ball labeled '13' rolled out.
Then, picking up a red telephone with a cord off-screen, Swift announced into the phone that track 13 of her album was called Mastermind.
"Of course," Swift said with a smile. It's well-known that 13 is the singer's favorite number.
"You would get track 13 first," Taylor Nation commented on the video.
"Taylor are you going to give us one track at a time," another commenter asked.
