  • - YEAH. I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT.

  • I MEAN, IT'S BEEN SOMETHING I'VE WANTED TO DO

  • FOR A REALLY LONG TIME,

  • AND I TOOK TWO YEARS TO MAKE IT.

  • - AND YOU SHOULD BE EXCITED. IT'S A FANTASTIC--

  • THE ENTIRE THING.

  • AND TO TAKE TWO YEARS OFF-- AND YOU'VE BEEN ON SUCH A ROLL,

  • AND YET--I MEAN, "SHAKE IT OFF" IS SUCH A GREAT SONG

  • AND SO CATCHY AND SO AMAZING

  • THAT IT JUST WENT CRAZY.

  • NOW "OUT OF THE WOODS"-- AND I THINK "ROLLING STONE"

  • JUST GAVE IT A FOUR-STAR REVIEW.

  • ISN'T THAT-- - YEAH.

  • CALLED THE SECRET SESSIONS.

  • - YES.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • - YOU--SO YOU--

  • HOW DID YOU CHOOSE-- HOW MANY PEOPLE WENT?

  • - OKAY, SO THIS WAS SOMETHING

  • I KIND OF CAME UP WITH THE CONCEPT FOR

  • BEFORE I WAS EVEN DONE WITH THE ALBUM.

  • I JUST KNEW I WAS GONNA BE SO EXCITED

  • ABOUT THIS RECORD

  • THAT I WAS GOING TO WANT TO PLAY IT FOR THE FANS EARLY,

  • AND THERE'S SO MANY PEOPLE WHO I HAD SEEN ON THE INTERNET,

  • LIKE, WHO HAVE BEEN TO SO MANY SHOWS

  • OR THEY'VE BEEN TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS

  • OR THEY'VE WAITED AND HAVE NEVER MET ME BEFORE,

  • AND THEY'VE BEEN SO INCREDIBLE.

  • SO I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING SPECIFICALLY CATERED

  • TOWARDS THOSE PEOPLE,

  • AND THE MORE AND MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT IT,

  • I KEPT AMPING IT UP.

  • I KEPT BEING LIKE, "WELL, IT'LL JUST BE LIKE--

  • IT'LL JUST BE ONE LITTLE SECRET GATHERING,"

  • AND THEN I MADE IT, "OH, IT'LL BE AT MY HOUSE."

  • AND I WAS LIKE, "OH, WE'LL DO IT AT ALL MY HOUSES."

  • AND THEN SO IT ENDED UP BEING 89 PEOPLE IN L.A.,

  • 89 IN NASHVILLE, IN NEW YORK, RHODE ISLAND,

  • AND IN LONDON.

  • - WOW, AND HAD YOU HAD MORE HOUSES...

  • [cheers and applause]

  • MORE PEOPLE COULD COME SEE.

  • - IF I--YES.

  • SO WE'LL WORK ON THAT FOR NEXT TIME.

  • - WOW. - BUT YEAH.

  • WE WOULD SPEND JUST HOURS TOGETHER,

  • ME PLAYING MY ALBUM FOR THEM ESSENTIALLY IN MY LIVING ROOM

  • AND EXPLAINING TO THEM WHAT I WROTE IT ABOUT,

  • AND THAT'S-- WELL, THAT'S HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE

  • WHO HAVE HEARD THE ENTIRE THING NOW,

  • AND YOU CAN'T FIND ANY INFORMATION

  • THEY'VE GIVEN ONLINE ABOUT IT.

  • - THAT'S REALLY COOL. - YEAH.

  • - THAT'S AMAZING. YOU HAVE GOOD FANS.

- FIRST OF ALL, THE TWO SONGS YOU'RE SINGING TODAY I LOVE.
