    Taylor Swift Posted A Video That Looked Like Nonsense, But Fans Quickly Decoded It

    It looks like we might get a Keith Urban collab!

    We're one week away from the highly anticipated re-release of Taylor Swift's Fearless, and Taylor just dropped a big hint about the titles of all the previously unreleased songs.

    Taylor is known for her love of codes and Easter eggs, and usually there's a bit of subtly. But today, she just posted a cryptic video with the caption "Happy decoding!"

    The vault door is about to be as unhinged as you’ll think I am after you watch this video. Level: Expert Happy decoding!

    The vault in the video represents the six songs Taylor is including on Fearless (Taylor's Version) that were previously unreleased, so fans automatically assumed this video somehow included the titles of all the vault songs.

    The groups of letters flying out of the vault may look like nonsense, but if you unscramble them, you get...slightly more understandable nonsense.

    The first thing we can do is pull out the words from the title of the vault song Taylor already released, "You All Over Me" (featuring Maren Morris).

    HI. 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).

    That leaves us with: bye, fine, Mr, we, Keith, that’s, were, baby, when, happy, you, don’t, featuring, perfectly, Urban, and bye.

    The next thing you'll probably notice is that we have the words "featuring Keith Urban" in there, meaning one of these vault songs will probably include the legendary singer!

    We're down to: bye, fine, Mr, we, that’s, were, baby, when, happy, you, don’t, perfectly, and bye.

    Luckily, Taylor fans have kept lists of songs she's performed in concerts before that never ended up being released. Three of those songs are "Mr. Perfectly Fine," "Don't You," and "That's When."

    Which leaves us with three words: bye, baby, and bye. Which happens to arrange nicely as "Bye Bye Baby."

    A lot of fans have reached similar conclusions, with some variation.

    @TheSwiftSociety @taylorswift13 This is what I’ve decoded One of the songs features KEITH URBAN

    "You All Over Me featuring" @MarenMorris , and then "Mr. Perfectly Fine", "We Were Happy", "That's When", "Don't You", and "Bye Bye Baby" with one/some featuring @KeithUrban <3 This was a fun puzzle @taylorswift13 !!! Can't wait for #FearlessTaylorsVersion https://t.co/tEzoHYr4hV

    Others were...less inclined to solved this "unhinged" puzzle.

    One last hint in the video is the bizarre background noise, which Swifties immediately started playing backward to hear what are probably snippets of the songs.

    Play is backwards!!! @taylorswift13

    It still sounds pretty muffled, but fans pulled out some phrases:

    THE RECORDING BACKWARDS SAYS: I’ll run into you somewhere I didn’t mean to stare She’s nothing like me I’m sure she’ll make you happy @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 how did we do?

    So, now we have some (maybe) song titles, a new (possible) collaboration, and some (probable) lyrics from the new songs! Guess we'll have to wait until April 9 to find out if we're right!
