- Taylor Swift posted a cryptic countdown on her website on Saturday that could mean she’s about to release new music.
- Fans have been speculating about a new album since she started posting pastel-colored photos on Instagram in February.
- The clock is counting down to April 26.
Taylor Swift might have new music coming.
On Saturday, the 29-year-old country star turned pop icon updated her website and social media with a cryptic countdown clock surrounded by floating pastel-colored clouds.
The announcement was a surprise, but it didn’t come entirely out of the blue. In February, Swift posted an Instagram photo containing seven palm trees, sparking fan theories that it could be a reference to her seventh studio album. She followed that post with a photo of herself sitting on the sixth step of a spiral staircase and another of her posing in the middle of a fence with five holes — possibly alluding to a countdown of sorts.
After months of speculation, Swift posted the countdown clock on Saturday, April 13, for a reveal 13 days away on April 26. Thirteen is Swift’s lucky number, one she often incorporates into her performances and work.
She also posted an Instagram photo of a glittery bejeweled heart with the caption “4.26,” referencing the reveal on April 26.
The domain name AprilTwentySix.com also redirects to Swift’s official site, as advertised on a screen in Times Square.
If you think I would not leave Queens go to Times Square to see a @taylorswift13 advertisement then you are naive and also have way too much faith in me and think I’m much cooler than I am pic.twitter.com/lS4id81TCN

The fact that I have my final year exams and assignments for uni all due at the beginning of May and Taylor releasing new music before is…not what I need. I CANNOT FOCUS ON REVISION BECAUSE ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT IS THE PROSPECT OF NEW MUSIC @taylornation13 @taylorswift13
