If your life doesn't revolve around a certain blonde pop star, chances are you've probably still already heard that Taylor Swift's new album Reputation is coming in November. After clearing her social media feeds and then sharing three cryptic slithering snake videos, Swift stopped everyone in their tracks on Wednesday by revealing news of both a brand new single and a new album dropping this year. Instantly, Twitter was filmed with memes and jokes about Swift's new music in response — whether about the album title, its cover art, or those snakes.
Leading up to the big reveal, there was much speculation about the connection between Swift and snakes. At the moment those questions remain unanswered and mystery abounds around Swift given her recent media presence — or rather, lack thereof. It's also been three years since the singer-songwriter released her last hit album 1989, so this album certainly feels like a long time coming.
Needless to say, the news that music will be released this year is an exciting development, and it might even suggest that Swift is going in a different direction with her sound. The internet is already losing their minds and the tweets about Swift's Reputation album are pouring in — and they're hilarious.
