There may be some new music coming from Taylor Swift after some subtly notable and puzzling changes to her social media presence. The 1989 singer has been quiet on the musical front lately, so it took her fans by surprise when she completely cleared all of the content from her social media pages late last week. She followed up the move by sharing a mysterious 10-second video clip, sans audio, onto each of her social media pages on Monday morning, leading to more assumptions that a new album may be coming from Swift in the very near future.
As seen in the video below, the only real content within the short clip comes in the form of an appendage of reptilian decent. There’s also a legitimate theory that Taylor is just in mourning over [spoiler alert] the loss of one of Dany’s dragons from Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones. Join the club Taylor.
The “Shake It Off” singer has been noticeably MIA for some time now, having only reappeared into media headlines due to recent legal matters. She also returned her entire album catalogue back to Spotify this past June, in addition to making a ‘generous’ donation to actress Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation late last week, which will go to benefitting survivors of sexual assault.
"My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard," Swift said in a statement to go with her donation. "Therefore I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.”
Swift’s last studio project, 1989, was released back in October 2014, so she appears to be running right on schedule for the start of a new album cycle as we head into the tail end of 2017. Fans should be on the lookout for more subtle hints of new music coming from Swift over the next few weeks.
