Taylor Swift certainly has a clandestine agenda. After dropping a surprise new single, "Shake It Off," along with a music video, the country-cum-pop-singer has revealed another top secret endeavor: house parties and listening sessions for her steadfast fanbase across the US and UK. Swift took to the internet to find groups of lucky devotees, inviting them to hear her new album, 1989, at a bevy of undisclosed locations including her mama's house. They are now known as the #1989SecretSessions.

Swift played a proper hostess, passing around her chocolate chip and toasted coconut cookies, taking selfies, kick-starting dance parties, and letting partygoers hold her famous kitty Olivia Benson. Oh, and she also happened to perform her entire album in full, a month ahead of its release.

The bad news: What really happens in the Secret Sessions STAYS in the secret sessions, but you can get a peek inside, below:
