OK, Swifties, it’s offish: your girl has a new single dropping August 24 and a new album, named Reputation, coming November 10.
We’re still one hundo p certain how all the cryptic videos—like the final snake vid *shudder*—factor in but we’re thinking we’ll find out when the new single drops tomorrow night.
In case you haven’t been keeping up, T-Swift has been up to something on her social channels and fans have been going absolutely bonkers wondering if this riddle means there’s a new Taylor Swift album right around the corner (turns out they were right). First, she wiped all her social media channels clean on August 19—posts, profile images, everything, gone. Then, when everyone was panicking about not having solar eclipse glasses and making hilarious eclipse jokes, she posted this mysterious snake video to all her social channels and followed it up with another one a few hours later. Oh and she also turned off comments on the ‘gram so trolls and Insta-sleuths can’t even share their theories. Fans
Is Taylor Swift just the world’s biggest celeb Game of Thrones fan? Has she gotten a new pet snake to keep her cute kitties company? Or is she trolling the trolls right back by reclaiming the snake, the emoji of choice for Taylor-haters everywhere who lapped up the tea Kim Kardashian spilled last year during the infamous #KimExposesTaylorParty?
No way…is Taylor Swift leaning totally into her supposed “snake” role people love giving her?! HERE FOR THAT!! Give it to em good, Taylor! https://t.co/azmocrQC7Y

Eagle-eyed Swift-watchers figured out that her first new single might be called “Timeless.”

What we do know is that just hours before the first solar eclipse visible in North America for 38 years, all anyone could talk or tweet about was whether or not Taylor Swift has new music coming. Did Taylor just throw… shade at the solar eclipse? (Pun passionately intended.)

Only T-Swift could overshadow an actual (and v. rare) eclipse, amiright? Can’t wait for your next move, girl.
