Taylor Swift's fans are sure she's re-recording Speak Now next and they can prove it

New York, New York - Taylor Swift just released her tenth studio album, Midnights, but Swifties are wasting no time as they come up with new theories about what the singer has planned next. Here's why Speak Now has emerged as a clear favorite.

The 32-year-old released two music videos for the Midnights era – Anti-Hero and Bejeweled.

Swifties went into a complete frenzy when the latter was released, as many took it to be near-confirmation that Speak Now (Taylor's Version) was going to be the next re-recorded album.

Swift released two re-recordings last year, Fearless (Taylor's Version) and Red (Taylor's Version), but she shifted gears this year with the release of the all-new Midnights album.

After a music video the singer confirmed is filled with Easter eggs, fans are confident that this theory will prove correct.

Oh, where to begin with the Speak Now Easter eggs featured in Bejeweled.

First, instrumental versions of Enchanted and Long Live, both tracks from Speak Now, are featured in the video.

Second, the elevator buttons in the video correspond to each of Swift's already-released albums, including both re-recordings which are the same color as the original versions. The 13th button is the same color as the 3rd button, which represents the original Speak Now. This color coordination appears again on the top of the elevator as the arrow moves across the floors.

Third, the number 3 appears once again when Swift is seen sitting in front of a large clock, with the arms pointing to 3. In a blink-and-you-'ll-miss-it moment, Swift can also be seen wearing clips with the letters S and N in her hair.

Some Swifties have even jumped to the conclusion that Speak Now (Taylor's Version) will drop on December 2 because the pocket watch featured in the video has the arms pointing to 12 with 02 inscribed at the bottom. This date is also a Friday, which is when the pop star typically releases new music.

Last but not least, the Bejeweled video dropped on the 12th anniversary of Speak Now's release.

Swifties have found other Speak Now hints on Midnights

But the theories surrounding Speak Now are not confined to the eggs-cellent video.

Some have pointed to the Midnights track Would've, Could've, Should've for more evidence.

The song is pretty obviously written about John Mayer, who is also the subject of the Speak Now song Dear John.

Speculation is brewing that Swift may have rerecorded Dear John around the same time as the new Midnights track, with the new song reflecting her emotional response to reliving the relationship through Dear John (Taylor's Version).

In an even more obvious move, Swift also donned her iconic purple dress and 13 hand art for a YouTube Short to promote Midnights.

Another memorable Speak Now prop made a reappearance in the Anti-Hero music video, as Swift plays a blue guitar with koi fish on it, which she previously used on the Speak Now tour.

The sheer abundance of clues does make this theory pretty hard to ignore, and if we know anything about Tay, none of this was accidental.
