A clue! A clue!
While Tay has yet to announce a release date, or title, for her fifth studio album she has made it clear that something is definitely on the way. Speculation is raging since she posted an Instagram video with the caption "So, here's your first clue..."
So, here's your first clue...
What does it mean?
A release date of October 18 (or Tuesday, November 18)? 18 tracks on the new album? 18 days? A new single?
A single on the 18th of this month would make an easy choice for her performance at the VMAs less than a week later...
She will also be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival September 19 and 20, where it is said she will be performing "new songs."
Tay also pushes the button a noticeable (but possibly not notable) six times, and we all know when it comes to dropping hints T Swift can be anything but unintentional.
