With anticipation for Taylor Swift's sixth studio album at an all time high, we examine everything we know about the release so far...
At the moment, there is no official release date.
But if we look at the release dates for Taylor's previous five albums, there seems to be a bit of a pattern...
Taylor Swift - October 24, 2006
Fearless - November 11, 2008
Speak Now - October 25, 2010
Red - October 22, 2012
1989 - October 27, 2014
As you can see, Taylor likes to release albums in October and they always tend to be at the end of the month.
There is also always a two year gap between each album, so if this sequence stays true, 2016 could be when we get new music!
We need to also take into consideration the fact that Taylor is set to perform at the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix, which will have a massive global audience.
Surely she won't be playing older tracks at that show will she?
Could October 2016 really be when we get the new album? This theory certainly makes us think so.
At the moment, we don't have an official title for Taylor's sixth album.
Given the fact that her longest album title consists of just two words, we think it's highly likely that this new release will aso have a very short name.
Could it be something like 'Over' to address her recent high profile relationships or perhaps it might be called 'Squad' to honour the friends who have stuck by her through thick and thin?
So far we don't have an official tracklisting for the album, but there is one snippet of an apparrent leaked track which as been floating about online.
It was shared by songwriter Kelsea Ballerini on Snapchat, who later claimed it was one of her own demos, but fans are still convinced it's a Taylor track. The leak features the lyrics, "We didn’t know it, thought we could grow it. Beautiful for a moment, we were roses."
Could this be a song that's set to feature on TS6?
