Any true Taylor Swift fan is already yearning for her next re-recorded album, which will be the sequel to Intrepid.
While the singer has not provided fans with any new information on when this will happen, Swifties seems to believe (or hope) it will soon be and is on the constant search for clues.
We’ve gathered everything we know so far and will continue to update it over time as new tips emerge …
Which is next if it publishes chronologically?
If she plans to re-record her albums in chronological order as she mentioned, technicallySpeak now (Taylor version) would be the next seen as the next album after Intrepid.
If Swift were to record their albums in chronological order, Speak Now would be next, followed by Red, followed by 1989, and ending with Reputation.
But fans believe that even if Swift re-records her albums in chronological order, that doesn’t necessarily mean she will release them in the same order.
Did we get any other clues?
Thanks to its recent appearance onThe Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this month, some fans thought Swift was subtly hinting at something big to come.
The general consensus, 1989 (Taylor version) is imminent.
In the past, Taylor has mentioned that she has an affinity for numbers and often spins her cues around them. When Taylor randomly mentioned Stephen’s age during the segment, saying he must be “about 44 years old, 179 days old, give or take,” fans immediately spotted a clue.
Stephen Colbert was born on May 13, 1964. Many fans believe that May 13 plays an important role. Why would Taylor even bother to talk about it?
Besides, Taylor also mentioned Colbert’s height, which is 5’11. with the first digits of his social security number: 33035
When you combine the numbers of Colbert’s size (5 + 11) and the false first digits of his social (3 + 3 + 0 + 3 + 5), you get the number 30. Here is the kicker, thirty days from the recording of the interview is May 13th.
While nothing has been confirmed by Swift or her management team, many fans are certain that Swift’s fifth album will be re-released next time around.
So why do some people on Twitter think ‘red’ is next?
While many fans are convinced that Swift will be released 1989 second, some think Red could be a potential candidate as well. Over the weekend, Swift posted an Instagram story regarding Girl in Red’s new album, “if I could shut him up, ” many speculated that it was a nod to his fourth studio album “Red.”
Although this is a bit of a stretch, many fans on Twitter were convinced it was an Easter egg.
His Reddit stans seem pretty confident in the “ 1989 ” theory …
To advance belief1989 (Taylor version) is next, fans are excited as a new version of “Wildest dreams” was previewed in the trailer for Untamed spirit. For those who don’t follow Swift’s music,“Wildest dreams” was one of the most popular tracks on 1989.
Swift also shared the Untamed spirit trailer on her Instagram story. Prior to the release of Fearless, she previewed her updated version of “Love Story” in Ryan Reynold’s Match commercial.
In addition, an instrumental version of “Wildest dreams” was also featured in the hugely popular Netflix series, Bridgerton.
How was 1989 greeted when it was first released?
If Swift released albums based on popularity, 1989 would definitely be a safe bet. Not only did Swift’s fifth studio album turn her into pop power, it earned her a total of ten Grammy nominations, with three Grammy Awards in 2016, including Album Of The Year.
It also reached number 1 on the Billboard 200, spending its entire first year in the Top 10. Of all Swift’s albums, 1989 was the only one to achieve this success.
Where will I find the news first?
While Swift hasn’t already provided Easter Eggs, fans can be sure she’ll be breaking the news via social media – as she has in the past. There will likely be a photo of her, probably the album cover, with a long caption explaining the album process and the songs that will be featured. She’ll thank her fans for supporting her throughout the process, followed by an additional post revealing which single will be released first.
Fans can also look forward to a potential Good Morning America announcement. True fans know that every time Swift appears on GMA it’s usually to announce something big – like the release of a new album.
