Taylor Swift starts mysterious countdown clock to April 26 on her website

Could new Taylor Swift music be incoming? A mysterious countdown clock of Swift’s website has fans thinking so!

Mark April 26 down in your calendars, Taylor Swift fans. We don’t know what for, but something is heading our way. The most common and prevalent theory, of course, being new music.

The countdown came to the attention of fans around midnight on Friday, when Swift tweeted a pastel sky image across her Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, promoting the “4.26” date. The url, apriltwentysix.com, was also included in the promotion, and redirected to Swift’s website.

Later on Saturday, Swift posted some heart shaped jewellery to her Instagram, with 4.26 as the caption.

The countdown concludes 13 days from now, and as fans are aware, 13 is Swift’s lucky number. It has certainly whipped fans up into a frenzy, and given them something to look forward to at the end of the month.

“I make countdowns for things I’m excited about,” Swift wrote in an essay for Elle. “When I’ve gone through dark, low times, I’ve always found a tiny bit of relief and hope in getting a countdown app (they’re free) and adding things I’m looking forward to.”

Swift last released an album in 2017, called Reputation. She is currently working on the movie adaptation of Cats, in which she was cast as Bombalurina in July 2018.

Of course, we may all be overthinking things. Perhaps Swift is just as excited as the rest of the world for the release of Avengers: Endgame on the same day.
