Taylor Swift Teases Something “18”-Related On Instagram: Watch

The time has come: Taylor Swift is ready to return with new music. (It seems, anyway.)

We already know that the Red country-pop diva is plotting to return to the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the end of September. We know she’s been working with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” hit-maker Max Martin again on “most of” her new record, and we already know that the record is already her “favorite thing.”

And now, the first hint at what could be the beginning of a new era starts with a mysterious Instagram clue posted earlier this afternoon, in which the “Love Story” songstress repeatedly pushes the “18” floor button in an elevator.

“So, here’s your first clue…” she captioned the brief clip.

So, what’s 18 stand for? The release date of her new single? 18 days until a thing? Is “18” the title of a song, or maybe the album? Are there 18 different choruses in her new song? Will she be touring 18 different shows in 18 countries in 18 days? Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
