Easter might be over, but the hunt for TS7 Easter Eggs is still in full swing.
Taylor Swift just pointed out all the clues she’s released about her upcoming album – and some of them go back all the way to two years ago! Remember her pastel nails in the “Delicate” vertical video?
“I foreshadowed [the tone] ages ago in a Spotify vertical video for ‘Delicate’ by painting my nails those [pastel] colors,” Taylor revealed to Entertainment Weekly.
What about that post with the palm trees last February?
“I posted that the day that I finished the seventh album,” Taylor said about the photo. “I couldn’t expect [my fans] to know that. I figured they’d figure it out later, but a lot of their theories were actually correct.”
Her blue dress and the heart-shaped bling during the countdown? Yep, those were Easter eggs as well.
There was even an Easter egg in her Merch line. She put a wax seal on April 13 in her calendar.
“I had an idea ages ago that I wantd to do a 13-day countdown starting on April 13.” And it’s exactly what she did with her new single “ME!”
And then, there’s her use of symbolism. “A lot of the time, I’ll pick something that symbolizes something else, like I’ll pick a snake as the mascot for feeling misunderstood, or, you know, being somebody who’s not going to strike unless they’re stepped on, or a butterfly which is like, breaking free of that darkness and fluttering into the light.”
She also revealed that she loves hiding Easter eggs in plain sight in her set designs – and she did it again in the “ME!” MV. Check it: the Christmas Tree, the Dixie Chicks painting, the “Lover” neon sign, the “Stream Co.” sign on the wall, the “It’s Delicate” graffiti, the code she used to open the door…yup, all Easter eggs – revealing what, she didn’t say though.
She did, however, talk about what’s in store for fans in her upcoming album, which, btw, has it’s title also hidden somewhere in the music video for “ME!”, here’s what she had to say:
“There’s a lot of a lot on this album. I’m trying to convey an emotional spectrum. I definitely don’t wanna have too much of one thing…. You get some joyful songs and you get the bops, as they say.” There’s also going to be some “really, really, really, really sad songs,” but “not enough to where you need to worry about me.”
“This time around I feel more comfortable being brave enough to be vulnerable, because my fans are brave enough to be vulnerable with me. Once people delve into the album, it’ll become pretty clear that that’s more of the fingerprint of this — that it’s much more of a singer-songwriter, personal journey than the last one.”
