After teasing fans with cryptic snake videos all week long, and letting fans assume just about everything about the track, the musician unveiled the artwork and drop date - November 10th - on her Instagram.
Starting with her 2006 self-titled debut and leading up to "1989", Swift had released an album every two years.
If the last snake video, shared Wednesday morning, is any indications, Swift these days is feeling fierce.
Following a couple of highly-publicized relationships and a dramatic feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Swift opted to step back from the spotlight as she focused on her new album in private. Swift, whose country roots won her a fan base in conservative parts of the United States, has steered clear of political commentary at a time that many fellow celebrities are bashing US President Donald Trump. "Taylor is overhauling her image".
Taylor Swift's new song will be released Thursday night.
"1989" became the fastest selling album in the United States in a decade, although her sales were dwarfed a year later by English balladeer Adele's "25" album.
What are Taylor Swift's previous albums?
Swift has been flying under the radar in the past months, making no major public appearances and skipping on her usual activities such as her annual Fourth of July bash. It wasn't until her recent court appearance over a sexual assault trial with a DJ that she began to return to the spotlight.
A day before Taylor's official reveal, a source told Us Weekly, "The single is very different".
A source revealed that new Taylor Swift music will be available this August 25, Friday. She also opts for a slicked-back beachy wave rather than her flawless bob and bangs.
Taylor Swift may have another timeless classic on her hands. Between the last album and this one, though, Swift also released the single "I Don't Want to Live Forever", which she recorded with Zayn and which was released as part of the soundtrack for Fifty Shades Darker.
