“No one who didn't need to 100% hear [the song] before tonight has heard it,” says the source. “She is thrilled that the album name and stuff didn't leak before and she got to control it. She was very upset in 2014 when the album name got out before she was ready.”

The source also believes Taylor will go on a stadium tour that will likely start in the spring.
