Taylor Swift knows how to keep her fans guessing with Easter eggs. After announcing her re-recorded Red album in June, the singer is back to give fans another sneak peek of what’s to come. On Thursday, Swift dropped a coded video message for all the bonus songs that will be featured on the album. If you thought her coded video for Fearless vault songs was hard, just wait until you try to decode this one. As Swift noted herself, the difficulty level is “casually cruel in the name of being honest.”

Just like the lyrics of her hit song “22” go, we’re feeling extremely happy and confused at the same time. Thankfully, some dedicated Swifties have already decoded a handful of the words. I’m telling you, Swifties are basically part-time detectives. As previously revealed, we’ll be getting the 10-minute version of “All Too Well” and the re-recorded version of her heartbreaking ballad “Ronan,” but it appears we’ll also be getting Swift’s solo versions of “Babe” and “Better Man,” which were released by Sugarland and Little Big Town, respectively.
Of course, one of the most exciting reveals is which artists will be featured on the bonus tracks. In addition to features from Chris Stapleton and Phoebe Bridgers, fans have also decoded Ed Sheeran’s name. Since Ed Sheeran is already featured on “Everything Has Changed” from the album, it seems like this will be yet another track from the duo. Before the original Red album was released in 2012, both Swift and Sheeran teased that they actually wrote two tunes for the album. Needless to say, Nov. 19 can’t get here fast enough!
