Taylor Swift confirmed new music is on its way!
After weeks of speculation, the "Delicate" singer finally revealed that her big April 26 announcement will, in fact, be a new song. The revelation came just minutes before Swift's surprise appearance in Nashville, where she also unveiled a butterfly mural that features clues about her new music.
"We've commissioned this butterfly mural to be painted on a wall in Nashville and put clues about the new song and new music,” the pop star said on her Instagram Story.
Can we all agree that Swift saying the mural contains clues about "the song and the new music" is the confirmation we've all been waiting for? We think so! It's unclear if she plans on dropping all of TS7, but it's pretty safe to assume she's going to release a new single off her forthcoming album at midnight tonight.
Swift first dropped clues about the April 26 countdown on her Instagram by teasing a completely new aesthetic, which fans immediately theorized was a new era.
At the event, she actually addressed fans and praised them for figuring it all out before revealing that another clue is coming later tonight.
"There's another clue coming on ABC, so make sure to watch," she teased.
"You guys are amazing for figuring this out because no one knew we were coming," Swift told the crowd. "No one knew this [mural was] a part of the campaign, but you figured out the clue. You're the best, I love you."
