Without a doubt, Taylor Swift is one of the biggest stars on the planet right now. Debuting on the country music scene back in 2006, she has gone on to forge one the most successful music careers of the past decade, churning out mega-hits like "Love Story," "Mine," "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Blank Space".
But now, after teasing us with snakes all week on social media, the singer shocked us all by announcing a brand new album. Check out the tweet below:
The album, titled Reputation, is set to be released on November 10, but will be preceded by the lead single which is set to debut on Thursday night. It will mark the singer's sixth studio album, and her first in three years.
But while she hasn't released music lately, that doesn't mean that Swift has been out of the public eye. The singer has hit the headlines quite a lot in recent months, mainly due to her court battle against former DJ David Mueller, and her well-known music rivalry with fellow pop star Katy Perry. Thus, with all of the controversy lately, critics have been quick to call her reputation into question.
However, the songstress is no stranger to incorporating real-life events into her music, and, judging from the newspaper headlines on the album's cover (not to mention the gritty cover art itself), it appears that she has channeled all of the negativity from haters into her new album. You go, girl.
