She captioned it: “When in doubt, ask the itty bitty pretty kitty committee. When they shun you with silence, ambivalence, and judgemental brush offs… just put the song out anyway.

In a selfie video filmed on her phone, Taylor said: “Okay I know this is pretty wild, but I’ve just written a Christmas song. I feel like it’s weird to wait a year to put it out, I don’t know what to do… I don’t have anyone to ask right now,” before asking her cats for their thoughts.

The song is aptly titled 'Christmas Tree Farm', as that’s where the songstress grew up.

Opening up about her home to her former label in 2013, Taylor said: "I grew up on a farm. It was a Christmas tree farm though, so that’s why I’m sort of obsessed with Christmas.

"I really love Christmas, I wish it was all year round, just like for the feeling that everybody has. Everybody’s buying gifts for each other and there’s sort of a feeling about it. But I think that the fact that I love it so much is probably because I grew up on a Christmas tree farm."

The surprise has left fans even more excited for Christmas, with one summing up the news: "Christmas is saved."

The magical upbringing sparked the superstar’s love of Christmas and fans have been long awaiting a festive tune from the ‘Shake It Off’ singer.

Following a number of Easter Eggs in her videos released earlier this year, including ‘You Need To Calm Down’, Taylor hinted at a Christmas song by including a large Christmas tree and some gift-wrapped presents in a behind-the-scenes look of ‘Lover’.
