Taylor Swift has just released "1989" (Taylor's version) to fans, which naturally means that Swift has already started working on the next "Taylor's version" album.

Only two of the singer's first six studio albums were left to be re-recorded: her 2006 self-titled debut and 2017's sixth studio album , Reputation . In light of 1989 , fans are revisiting every Easter egg she could possibly lay, suggesting that Reputation (Taylor's version) is on the way.
