This singer always likes to keep her fans on their toes. And clearing out her social media certainly sent Swifties into a tailspin. But just when does Taylor Swift's new album, Reputation, come out? With rampant rumors about new music on the way, she finally revealed that her highly anticipated album comes out on Friday, Nov. 10. *cue high-pitched squeals*
You might have noticed the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer posted a mysterious video of a snake on Instagram and Twitter on Monday. Perhaps, her post was just pop star language for, "I'm coming back with some venomous hits," or "Oh, you think I'm a snake, huh? I'll show you snake!" Regardless, Swift is officially back. But before you start freaking out any further, there's also another coincidence with the upcoming release of Reputation.
Autumn is a season that symbolizes change, but if you look closely, it's also the time of year when Swift typically releases her albums. According to Billboard, the 27-year-old's self-titled debut album was released on Oct. 24, 2006. She went on to drop Fearless on Nov. 11, 2008; Speak Now on Oct. 25, 2010; Red on Oct. 22, 2012; and 1989 on Nov. 4, 2014. But if you're a diehard Swifty, it's T. Swift season 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days of the year.
You know, after an album drops a tour soon follows — just saying. But hold your horses! Let's not get ahead of ourselves too quickly. There's still the MTV Video Music Awards to take into consideration.
A surprise Swift performance at the VMAs could do wonders for her Reputation (both literally and the upcoming album). One of music's biggest nights is always the best place to debut new music. But with her frenemy Katy Perry hosting the show, who knows how likely that would be. Maybe they've squashed their beef? Maybe they'll perform together? The possibilities are endless.
Although she may have a pattern with album releases, when it comes to Swift and her music, it's always smart to expect the unexpected.
