Taylor Swift has been posting mysterious photos on her Instagram account, teasing an announcement on April 26th. The mystery started Friday when Swift added a countdown timer on the landing page of her website. The timer provides no information other than the fact that it is counting down to midnight on April 26th, suggesting she plans to make an announcement on that date.
The tease of the timer is bolstered by a series of cryptic images she’s posted to her Instagram, two of which feature images of jewelry – one a close up of a heart-shaped pin, and another showing a woman’s hands, adorned with rings, several of which feature a similar heart motif.
A third photo features what appears to be tulle or chiffon fabric in pastel pink.
All are tagged with the caption 4:26 but none provide any additional obvious information about what’s she’s teasing. The images all feature pastel colors and two of the three feature jewelry, hinting that the grand reveal may be fashion oriented, but only time will tell.
Given that April 26th is a Friday - global release day for new music - there is also speculation that Swift is about to release new tracks or an entire album, the first under her new deal with UMG.
