Ahead of Lady Gaga's Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show, Taylor Swift will hit the stage for DirecTV's annual pre-Super Bowl party, Super Saturday Night, which takes place on February 4 in Houston, Texas. Tickets for the event will reportedly be available through a series of promotions and campaigns from AT&T, which acquired DirecTV back in 2015.
The announcement arrives with the news that Swift has inked an exclusive, multi-year partnership deal with AT&T that will include performances like the Super Saturday Night show and even more content, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Many fans are speculating that the pre-Super Bowl performance and new AT&T deal means that Swift has new music on the way, pointing out that the singer typically releases albums every two years and her last album was 2014's 1989. Things have been relatively quiet for Swift since Famous-Gate except for the revelation that she actually contributed to Calvin Harris and Rihanna's hit song, "This Is What You Came For."
Only time will tell if Swift decides to pull a Beyoncé and surprise drop an album on us ahead of her performance, but we'll definitely be paying close attention in February.
