After days of teasing, Taylor Swift has finally confirmed new details of a brand new album.

A release date for the singer's sixth studio album - titled Reputation - has been set for 10 November and you can spy what we can only assume to be the official artwork above.

Swift fans can also rejoice in the fact that she will drop the record's first single as early as tomorrow (24 August).

The US singer fuelled speculation of new music after posting cryptic Instagram videos featuring a lo-res snake which arrived after a complete social media blackout last week on the three-year anniversary of hit single "Shake It Off."

Details on timings of Swift's new single release remain unclear, with the Instagram post stating simply it'll be available to hear tomorrow night. There is currently no word on how fans can listen to the track, however, it's expected to be available to stream on Apple Music, iTunes and Spotify. However, considering the previous inability to hear Swift's music on the latter - and considering her recent exclusive deal with Apple Music - it could be that the track becomes available to hear more readily in some places than others. Watch this space.

This announcement has sent fans' excitement into overdrive with the hope that she'll unveil the single's video at this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards which is set to be hosted by her long-time rival Katy Perry.
