Taylor Swift's new album Reputation releases on 10 November Instagram/Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift fans (aka Swifties) have been having a tough time keeping their calm these past few days. After the singer wiped all her social media accounts clean, a number of hopeful fans were certain that the move meant she was prepping to announce some big news, and they were right.

After teasing fans with clips of a snake's body on her various online accounts, on 23 August, Swift unveiled the artwork for her new album along with its title and release date.

With a name like Reputation, we can expect the compilation to reflect some of the drama from her spats with other celebrities like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry. The new album has been given a release date of 10 November.

However, fans will not have to wait as long to enjoy some fresh music from their favourite 27-year-old Grammy winner. The first new single is set to drop on the night of 24 August and will be available all streaming services and digital retailers.

It has been close to three years since Swift's last album 1989, and audiences are not simply looking forward to a great set of tracks... they are expecting her music to destroy the charts and with them, Despacito's long run as the No1 single on the Billboard 100 list.

Mariah Carey still holds the record for longest No1 position on the music chart for her 1996 love ballad One Sweet Day with Boys II Men. The song held top spot for 16 weeks, but is now in jeopardy of losing its title to the combined effort of Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.

The only hope? Swift's upcoming single.
