Stans Exposed Taylor Swift's New Album Before She Announced It

After wiping her social media accounts clean, the Blank Space singer had everyone freaking out that new music was on its way. After the new single drops, Swift is set to attend the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

But Swift clearly didn't want to keep her fans waiting for long, today posting a peculiar 10-second video of a snake slithering on a black background.

Her last record, "1989", was released in 2014 and sold 1.2 million copies in its first week.

"First single out tomorrow night", a post said.

Post Mittal's resignation, Ashwani Lohani appointed as new Railway Board chairman
A Mechanical engineer by training, Ashwani Lohani belongs to the Indian Railways Services of Mechanical Engineering (1980 batch). The head of India's railways has quit after a series of deadly accidents on the crumbling network, an official said Wednesday.

Check out the official announcement below. A title, release date, and cover art doesn't change all that much when it comes to the theories (many of them conspiracy-leaning, given Swift's apparent love of cryptography)-but it gives fans plenty more to read into.

"1989" became the fastest selling album in the United States in a decade, although her sales were dwarfed a year later by English balladeer Adele's "25" album. Swift poses in a battered-looking, loose-fitting gray sweater with a zig-zag stitch detail on her right shoulder and a chain choker necklace, looking more rebel than pop princess. Genius listed a potential new Taylor Swift song called "Timeless" as "coming soon". The black-and-white image shows the singer staring into the camera as her name repeats in a series of pattern designs behind her.

On Monday, she shared a short, glitchy clip of a snake's tail, before uploading its curling body on Tuesday. As Time reported, one fan speculated that the snake's face showed the numbers two and five, which hints at an August 25 release date.

Swift has kept a low profile in the recent months and sources have confirmed she's been busy working on tracks for the new album.
