Taylor Swift is slowly dropping hints about possible new music.

Just hours after updating her website and social accounts with a countdown clock early Saturday (April 12), the pop superstar shared a photo of a diamond-encrusted heart on social media. The mysterious post didn't include a caption, but is likely another clue about a new project.

The clock on TaylorSwift.com counts down to midnight on Thursday night (April 25), which is looking like a New Music Friday release. Adding further proof, her Instagram and Twitter bios have been updated to read "4.26."

In late February, fans started theorizing, based on Swift's Feb. 24 Instagram post, that the superstar's seventh album was on the way. The Swifties noticed that there were exactly seven palm tree emojis in Swift's caption, meaning that TS7 was imminent. They also pointed out that there were 61 stars in the photo -- and as it turns out, there are exactly 61 days between Feb. 24, when the original Instagram photo was posted, and April 26, the teased date.

Swift's last album, Reputation, was released in November 2017 and launched with 1.216 million copies sold in its first week. In March 2018, the album became her sixth to sell more than 2 million copies in the United States.
