Taylor Swift announced a new album titled "Reputation" on Wednesday, just over a week after scoring a court victory at a high-profile groping trial in Colorado.
The singer made the announcement in a series of Instagram images, including a possible album cover featuring a black and white illustration of Swift with newspaper-style headlines overlapping part of her face.
The album will be released on 10 November and the first single will debut on Thursday.
Swift ended a six month absence from the public spotlight to deliver unflinching testimony against a radio DJ in a Denver court earlier this month.
The singer, one of the most followed people on social media, followed her court victory by deleting posts from Instagram, Twitter and removing her avatar from her Facebook page, sending fans into a frenzy speculating about whether Swift had been hacked or was preparing to launch new music or reinvent herself.
"Reputation" follows Swift's 2014 best-selling album "1989."
