New Taylor Swift Music Is On the Way, Sources Say

Taylor Swift is set to release a new single from her sixth album Friday, reported US Weekly who cited information from multiple sources. The website quoted one insider’s comment on the new single: “The song is poppy.”

US Weekly quoted another anonymous source as saying of Swift’s upcoming sixth album, “She’s being very secretive about it, but it’s going to be a really good one.”

Swift first sparked rumors that she had new music on the way when she blacked out her website and social media accounts last week. Taylorswift.com featured a completely black page, which led many fans to speculate new music was coming and create the hashtag “#TS6IsComing”. A new album from Swift would be her sixth, “1989” being her fifth album which was released in 2014.

Other possible clues pointed out by fans online regarding new music include Swift’s Vevo lists 77 songs with only 73 visible, and her page says there are 141 videos yet only 140 are available.

Swift spurred yet more speculation on Monday when she tweeted a cryptic, caption less 10-second video of what appears to be a snake slithering around in the dark.

CNN speculated the tweet may be making fun of the popular “Taylor Swift is a snake” meme. Swift’s social media accounts last year were flooded with snake emojis posted by “anti-Swifties” in the wake of a highly-publicized feud between Swift, Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West.

As for Swift’s highly-anticipated new song that may release soon, according to the lyric-sharing website Genius, Smith will release a new tune called “Timeless.” The title and lyrics were posted there Monday but taken down later.
