Taylor Swift has hinted fans could be hearing new music in a fortnight after she posted a mysterious countdown to her social media overnight.

Alongside the ticking clock, the 29-year-old also added the date 4.26 to her Instagram profile, pointing towards a possible release date for new music of Friday April 26.

The singer's countdown also began at 13 days, a number the star has claimed is lucky for her.
Swift's last album, Reputation, was released about 18 months ago and explored the pitfalls of fame through a prism of pop and electronic sounds.

This is not the first time Swift has teased new material this year.

In February she posted a series of images appearing to show her in a recording studio, sparking excitement among fans on social media.

Is Swift about to release a new album?

Fans took to social media in their droves to express their excitement over the ambiguous news, and, of course, to speculate what the upcoming announcement could be about.
