Taylor Swift is releasing something on April 26 and we’re ready
Taylor Swift is teasing fans with a countdown on her website and daily posts on social media put forth even more clues while keeping a uniform theme. There have been a few pictures so far with pastel colors and the same caption 4.26, which is obviously a date, the date the countdown reaches. So it’s safe to say we’re expecting something from Taylor on Friday, April 26.
The countdown, theme, and cryptic imagery have sparked so much interest and speculations as to what Swift could mean by it all?! What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything? And the answer is 4.26 not 42 this time. Naturally, most of us at camp Swift are expecting a new album since Taylor hasn’t released one since Reputation in 2017. It’s interesting to note that Taylor is using a similar strategy of teasing this new project like the one she used in 2017 when she deleted all her content and filled her profile with snakes. This time it’s more dreamy pink with less slithering but Instagram remains as a main element.
In an “Elle” interview published earlier this month, Taylor listed 30 things she learned before turning 30, which will happen in December. For number 26 (which seems to be the key to unlocking some of the mystery) she lists that whenever she is really excited about something she makes a countdown.
“When I’ve gone through dark, low times, I’ve always found a tiny bit of relief and hope in getting a countdown app (they’re free) and adding things I’m looking forward to. Even if they’re not big holidays or anything, it’s good to look toward the future. Sometimes we can get overwhelmed in the now, and it’s good to get some perspective that life will always go on, to better things”.
Clearly she is very excited about this and so are we. Everybody is keeping a close eye on Taylor’s socials to try and solve the mystery looking closely for any clues. It’s been recently pointed out that she posted a picture with seven palm trees, then one showing Taylor sitting on the stairs with her hand on step number 6 if you count from the top. More recently she posted a picture of her looking through the fence that has 5 holes. Yesterday, Swift posted a photo of her hands and she was wearing four rings then a photo of pink tulle ruffles in 3 shades of pink followed by a picture of her two cats, Meredith and Olivia, on the couch.
So we could be expecting a Taylor Swift song as early as this Friday since the picture countdown could hit 0 on the day songs get released. If we don’t, we would wait till April 26 to get a taste of what’s coming while of course keeping track of the clues she’s dropping.
