Between the last album and this one, though, Swift also released the single "I Don't Want to Live Forever", which she recorded with Zayn and which was released as part of the soundtrack for Fifty Shades Darker.

In addition, Swift also announced that the full Reputation album will be hitting stores on November 10th.

The first single from the album is out on Thursday night.

Reputation follows her colossal blockbuster 1989, which won album of the year in 2014.

Her new song will be eligible for next year's Grammys - but her album won't.

. It would make a triumphant climax of the past few weeks for Swift, who faced off against the former radio DJ David Mueller who she alleged had touched her inappropriately during a meet-and-greet in 2013.

Taylor Swift's return to social media is a weird one. This is an edgier, more high-fashion version of Swift. She posted two cryptic videos of a snake moving its tail.

The use of a snake calls back to Swift's previous feuds with her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris and with Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian. While some fans are guessing of a new single, other fans are guessing of Taylor's tracking down an entry on the music rights site HFA, with a new track under the singer's name tilted "Timeless".

The song will be the beginning of a new phase she's setting for her music.

Swift made headlines with "1989" by shunning Spotify, accusing the streaming giant of short-changing artists, although she ended her boycott in July. Another report from Variety revealed that Swift is rumored to debut her new music video at the MTV Video Music Awards this August 27, Sunday.
