Taylor Swift season is here and there's more surprises in store. A new song, “Ready For It,” premiered late on Saturday night during the Alabama vs. Florida State game. “Ready For It” is the second song Swift has teased after the premiere of “Look What You Made Me Do.”

The game took place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and the song played just after the pre-game show specifically to surprise fans. But the song won’t stay limited to the stadiums for long, as iHeartRadio stations are set to play the song beginning tomorrow morning.

“Ready For It” sounds like a true pop ballad, bursting with more of the characteristic sound of Swift than Reputation’s lead single, “Look What You Made Do,” which wasn’t exactly well-received by everyone who heard it. The video for that song was released during the MTV Video Music Awards last week, and has already become the single most watched music video in 24 hours.

Reputation is set to drop on Nov. 10, which is also coincidentally the 10th anniversary of Kanye West’s mother’s death. While Taylor has denied claims that the album drop date was chosen on purpose to get back at Kanye for what he’s done to her—interrupting her during the VMAs in 2007, that infamous line in his song “Famous”—fans have already started planning a “Hey Mama” Day in an effort to counteract Taylor’s supposed jab by playing Kanye songs on repeat on that day.
