Swift announced that Reputation, her sixth studio album, will drop on November 10 and its first single will be unveiled on Friday.
Swift decorated her Instagram page Wednesday afternoon with a few glimpses of the black-and-white cover, which features a stark image of the singer next to several newspaper clippings.
Even though it's been almost three years since Swift's 1989 - which won the Album of the Year Grammy - she hasn't been a stranger to the charts.
It's been almost three years since Swift's last album - "1989" - which won the Album of the Year Grammy. Preceded by a series of Instagram videos of a decidedly nasty-looking snakes slithering across her feed, Swift's announcement also indicated a new single slated for release Thursday.
Exactly how her teases tie into her album's overall theme is not yet clear, but they could be a reference to her complicated history with the animal. The 36-year-old beauty and her husband Kanye West fell out with Taylor over the lyrics in the rapper's Famous track last year, in which he referred to the singer as a b***h*, and Kim now fears a backlash. Swift, you better be ready.
If the first single-reportedly entitled "Timeless", based on a mysterious website that went live earlier this week-is really nine minutes long, Swift may have to abbreviate it a bit.

After all, even Beyoncé had to perform a medley when she played Lemonade at the VMAs.
