Taylor Swift has left a blank space in the social sphere—both online and IRL. Aside from a pre-Super Bowl performance in February, Tay has been mysteriously absent from the spotlight, and her social media posts have been way less personal than usual. So where has the superstar been?
Swifties, rejoice, because your wildest dreams just might be coming true: According to ET Online, Taylor is working on her sixth album. Although Swift usually releases an album every two years, she didn't release one in 2016, so she’s due for new music.
Tay has been working on the album in Nashville, hence her step away from the public eye. But why Music City? Taylor's most recent (and incredibly successful) album, 1989, was her first official pop album, but sources say she could be considering a return to her country music roots with this next project.
While Swift has not made any official announcements about the project or when to expect its release, Ed Sheeran seems to have the inside info. In a March interview with BBC, he said, “Taylor isn't going to be releasing until probably the end of this year." This would follow the pattern of her previous album releases, since four out of her five albums came out in October.
Fingers crossed we get to hear new music from Taylor sooner rather than later.
