Are you ready for it?
The time is finally here — it looks like Taylor Swift is preparing to release her new album!! (I'm not screaming, you're screaming!!!!)
Late Friday evening (April 12), the 29-year-old singer shared a countdown across her social media accounts, confirming that something BIG and special is coming on April 26. Taylor not only shared a link to the countdown, which is aprilTwentySix.com, she additionally changed her social media bios to solely feature the impending date. Her new IG bio reads, "4.26," along with a link to her website, which is now the countdown. Taylor's website also has a sign up to receive updates.
That's not all folks. T-Swift's countdown is on a bed of pink and purple clouds, which she made her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook cover photos. Could it be that her next album, which fans have dubbed TS7, is called Clouds? Up in the Air? After the Storm? Sky? Or maybe she's launching something else about clouds? We don't know for sure, but it's definitely some kind of teaser. (And I'm here. for. it.)
While it's not confirmed if it's an album, or a new song, or even new merch, that hasn't stopped fans (or me) from speculating about what is to come. As previously reported, Taylor has been dropping hints seemingly about her next project for some time now. Last month, ahead of the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, she teased fans with a load of dreamy California pictures on Instagram.
"Due to the butterfly migration in Southern California maybe I’ll just stay outside until I head indoors for @iheartradio awards," Taylor captioned a photo of herself with a dreamy rainbow filter. In another photo, Tay is shown standing on a tennis court with palm trees in the background. She simply captioned that shot with a simple butterfly emoji.
Taylor kept her purple-pink-dreamy-etherial theme going on the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet as she arrived in a sequined Rosa Bloom romper and butterfly Sophia Webster heels. Her red carpet teaser — in conjunction with her previous butterfly and palm tree teasers —sent fans into a spiral as they tried to decipher what appeared to be clues about TS7. While hundreds of theories remain online, this new countdown on a bed of clouds hint seems to confirm that there's some outdoor, dream-like, fun yet moody sky theme going on.
Guess we'll have to wait and see. The countdown to TS7, or possibly something else, continues!
