She also announced on Instagram that her first single from the new album will be released on Thursday night. The “Blank Space” singer also revealed some pop art to go along with the new album.
Last week, Swift blacked out her entire social media presence as well as her website, fueling many fans’ thoughts that she was about to release new material. Before long, the hashtag #TS6IsComing shot onto the Twitter trends chart, as Swifties theorized about a new release from the “1989” singer.
Since then, she’s been posting weird videos of a snake on her social media accounts.
Swift’s previous album, “1989,” was released in October 2014 and debuted in the number one spot on the Billboard 200. During the first week of release, it sold 1.287 million copies. It eventually became the best-selling album of 2014 in the United States. “1989” also won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, after she won in 2010 for her album, “Fearless.”
Her other previous albums include “Speak Now” and “Red.”
Earlier this month, Swift emerged victorious from a trial over whether radio DJ David Mueller groped her rear-end during a 2013 meet-and-greet at Denver’s Pepsi Center. Swift was granted the symbolic $1 award that she had sought in the case.
That verdict followed a Colorado judge’s prior decision to toss out the claims made against Swift by Mueller, who claimed he was fired after being wrongfully accused of the groping.
