Taylor Swift posted this image to her social channels this week and it took the internet about three seconds to figure out she's teasing a new album. Just an over-filtered photo reminiscent of Instagram's infancy. No. Way.
Four palm trees on the left. Taylor Swift. Fearless. Speak Now. Red. Her country albums.
Two on the right. 1989. Reputation. Her pop albums.
One in the middle. Her seventh album. Balanced between the trees.
She's releasing a pop/country album. But when?
Well folks... Taylor is dropping more hints.
Look above. She's sitting on the sixth step above a piano. Then she's standing behind five holes in the fence. Slats? What are they called? I didn't grow up in a fence household. Whatever. She's counting down. You get the point.
I for one am surprised if it's really a new album. Reputation came out in late 2017 which kicked off a massive stadium tour. She's currently filming Cats. She's had no downtime at all! When would she have written new songs or recorded any vocals?
But she also usually releases a new album every two years. So who the hell knows? She didn't become the biggest megastar since like King Tut by taking days off.
So here's my guess. She drops a new song on Saturday, March 2nd, that's super fun and breezy. Like a palm tree. Get it! Not on the nose at all. Then the new album announcement says Taylor's seventh album will be a pop/country crossover event slated to hit in Mayish-Junish which will obviously be the ultra-smash hit of the summer. Can't wait!
I write the words I'm too uncomfortable to say.
