Taylor Swift just confirmed what she has been teasing on her social media for what feels like forever: new music is on the way.

The singer, whose next song is due out at midnight tomorrow (April 26),  confirmed the news in a surprise appearance at The Gulch in Nashville.

Dressed in her new signature ethereal style, complete with an off-the-shoulder skirt set, Swift thrilled her fans as she greeted hundreds of them Thursday.


But just before making the appearance, she took to Instagram to share dozens of reactions from fans excited about the song. In addition, she revealed that she did indeed commission the massive butterfly mural at The Gulch, by one of her favorite artists, Kelsey Montague.

“OK so we’ve commissioned this butterfly mural to be painted on a wall in Nashville and put clues about the song and the new music in the mural,” Swift said on the social network Thursday. “So I’m going to go show up. The butterfly mural is painted by Kelsey Montague who painted one of my favorite murals in New York. And, uh, let’s go see what happens.”

Swift also praised the extreme sleuthing skills of her fans, telling them: “You figured out the clue, no one knew we were coming. This was one clue, we’ve got another clue coming tonight on ABC. So make sure to watch.”

She also revealed that the mural contained clues about the new music but stopped short of giving any additional information.

Looks like we’ll have to wait until tonight to find out all the deets on the new track.
