Taylor Swift fans are so lucky.

The 24-year-old hitmaker has been making headlines as she continues to host private listening parties at her home for her loyal fans, during which she previews her upcoming album 1989 in anticipation of the record's release, and now T.Swift has shared some of the behind-the-scenes footage from these epic gatherings.

"Here it is... your behind the scenes look at the #1989SecretSessions. Love you guys so much," Taylor wrote on Twitter with the YouTube clip.

It opens with, "Over the past year, Taylor Swift has scoured the internet in search of fans for top secret events taking place across the US and UK. These became known as the 1989 secret sessions."


The clip then shows a number of fans from big cities all over America (Nashville, Los Angeles, New York, Rhode Island...to name a few) gathering together on a bus to go to an undisclosed location.

Meanwhile, Swift was busy cooking up cookies for her guests in the kitchen (what a great host!). "Making bulk batches of chocolate chip and toasted coconut cookies for the New York secret session," she said.

Swift continued, "So this is the first of the Secret Sessions which are little, mini living room house parties where I'm gonna be playing my fans the album first. So we wanted to surprise them and they're here, they're out mingling and eating  and things like that. I'm sure they know something's going on but I don't know if they think this is going on."

Judging by their screams and shocked faces, no, they had no idea. Fans were elated to be greeted with the singer, who played her new album for some of her nearest and dearest, and also took the time to take photos with each and every one of them.

However, we weren't able to witness everything that went down during these secret sessions, because, well...they're secret.

The video ends with, "What happens in the Secret Sessions, STAYS in the Secret Sessions :)."


"Well, basically, I got this idea before I finished the album and I wanted to call it the 1989 secret sessions," she explained during a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show. "Because I knew before I finished the album that I was most proud of this album more than anything I had done before and so I wanted to give chance to hear it before it came out.

"I'd never done this before, but I wanted it to be all fans who had never met me before and had been like ‘I've been to seven shows, I've never met you. I camped out on the street, I waited outside, I never saw you'—I wanted it to be these people who have been so dedicated but I've never got to thank them in person," she continued before sharing how she discovered her devoted fans. 

"I found them on the Internet," the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer confessed. "I would go online and look at their Instagrams pages or their Tumblr or their Twitter or whatever and just kinda watch them for months and months."

Creepy? Yes, a little, but we're with it.
