Every couple of years we get some cryptic social media posts from Taylor Swift. It happened in 2012 prior to the release of her Red album, in 2014 prior to the release of her 1989 album and in 2017 prior to the release of her reputation album. Now, it’s happening again.
Taylor has taken to Instagram sharing images and one solo date—4.26. So what’s going to happen on April 26? Will it be a new album? A new single? New music of some kind? We can only hope.
The cryptic posts started on April 13, Taylor’s lucky number, exactly 13 days before the big day.
The first image Taylor shared is that of a heart full of diamonds. Clue #1.
The second image came a day later and it shows hands holding on to a yellow raincoat. The colors of her nails are pastel blue and pink and she is wearing another diamond heart ring. (There’s that diamond heart again.) Also included in the image is a rainbow colored ring, allowing us to believe that whatever is coming, it sure will be colorful. Clue #2
The third image is a close up of pink taffeta material. Keep in mind the diamonds in the heart of the first image are also pink. And every other finger in the third image is painted pink. Taylor already did a Red album, so perhaps this is her pink period. Clue #3.
The fourth image, posted on April 15, is of her precious cats, Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey, perched on a pink couch with translucent glitter falling down. Clue #4.
Pink seems to be the theme. However, you can never be too sure about what Taylor is trying to say with her messages. No matter what, new music is on the horizon. The images this time are light, airy and happy and a different tune from what the 29-year-old was singing on her reputation album.
