A few days ago, Taylor Swift got her fans riled up as the singer completely wiped out her social media accounts, deleting all existing posts. Now, it appears that the Shake It Off singer was just making way for something big – a new album.

According to Us Weekly, Taylor will be dropping the first single from her upcoming sixth album this Friday, 25 August 2017. While the singer has not said anything, a few events point in that direction.

Late last night, Taylor posted a cryptic ten-second video of a snake's tail on all her social media accounts, with no caption.

Soon after, her Bad Blood music video director Joseph Kahn posted this tweet: "In 30 minutes, as a show of power, @taylorswift13 will blot out the sun."

As most of the world watched the moon eclipse the sun, Swifties started doing some digging and came up with their own theories.

One fan account took the time to zoom into the snake tail and claims they spotted a '2' and a '5', which falls in line with the rumoured 25 August 2017 drop.

While some speculate that it might be a dragon's tail and not a snake's in the teaser, another Twitter user pointed out that Taylor's born in the year of the snake.

So many theories, so little time – whatever it is, you definitely have our attention, Taylor. Now, we'll just have to wait and see.
