After a few months of speculations and rumors, Taylor Swift announced that she will be returning to the charts with a brand-new album. Swift has been teasing the release of new music on her social-media accounts over the last few days, and today, she finally announced the name of her sixth studio album. Called “Reputation,” Swift’s social-media accounts confirmed that the album will be released on November 10, and the first single from the album will be released on Thursday night of this week.
Not only did fans get a new album name, a release date, and the promise of a new single, Swift also released the cover-art of the album. Swift initially teased that an announcement was coming this Friday, but it’s unclear why the news was released a little early. Swifties are probably not complaining about the early-release, and are very excited to get their hands on the new music. The first tease came on the third anniversary (to the day) when Swift first announced her “1989” album. That was the first time that the world heard of “Shake It Off,” and it easily climbed to number-one on the charts shortly after it was released.
Swift has been a bit of a mystery this month, following her triumphant legal-win against a Denver disc jokey that groped her, Swift deleted all previous postings on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. We suspect that the social-media cleansing will be made clear after we hear a few songs off the album. Swift fams should also be excited for the MTV Video Music Awards, which are set to air this Sunday, that’s because there’s a very good chance that Taylor Swift could drop a brand-new music video at the event to close the show. Fans of Swift have waited three-years for new music from the pop-star, that’s not including any single work like the “Fifty Shades Darker” song “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” with Zayn Malik. The album will certainly be the most-exciting drop of the weekend, and we can’t wait to see if Swift surprises us at the MTV Video Music Awards this year.
All in all, this Friday is going to rock.
