Taylor Swift’s recent relationship rollercoaster has had curiosity and conspiracies buzzing for months, not only about the true status of her love life, but also about a possible new album — breakup songs are her forté, after all. But in the last few days, there have been some clues that lead fans to believe that a secret new album is about to drop any day now. Here’s the possible proof…
Any fan of Taylor’s can tell you that since her first hit-maker back in 2006, the self-titled Taylor Swift, the songstress has been apt to release a new album every two years. Not only that, but she likes to release her new music in October, one of the most popular times for superstars to unleash their hits on us.
If we stick with the pattern, and seeing that Taylor’s last release of the super popular 1989 was on October 27th, 2014, that means we’re due an album.
But that’s not all!
Though a rep from Tay’s record label, Big Machines’ Scott Borchetta, tweeted earlier this year that Taylor wasn’t releasing any new songs this year, that tweet has now been deleted. Iiiiinteresting!
Extra interesting since Taylor, who apparently missed out on both the Olympics’ theme song (to rival Katy Perry, no less) and didn’t nab the Super Bowl half-time show gig (which went to Lady Gaga), just managed to ink a massive multi-year deal with AT&T which will see her performing at DIRECTV’s Super Saturday Night event ahead of this year’s Super Bowl. Would that possibly go forward without new music to step up the hype? Not likely.
Aaaaand, Taylor’s one performance for the year is set for the Formula One US Grand Prix in Texas on Saturday, October 22, which would seem like the ideal time for a surprise album drop.
Hey, Taylor? Anything?
