Taylor Swift's social media absence and lessened public appearance since February 2017 have raised the alarms for her fans all over the world. Fans were quick to speculate that the multi-awarded singer from Nashville might be busy with her new album.

According to Cosmopolitan, the "Shake It Off" singer was last seen in public during the Super Bowl Weekend. Swift last released an album in 2014 and based on her production history, the "Wildest Dreams" singer gives an average of two years as gaps for new album releases. It's been more than two years since her last album was released so the majority of the fans, also known as Swifties, expect a new album to be released in 2017.

The big question now is - is Taylor Swift really busy producing a new album? If so, why does she need to withdraw from social media and other public events? The Entertainment Tonight quoted a sourced saying that Swift is actually busy working on her new album.

As to why Swift is limiting her social media presence, the source revealed that the 27-year-old singer is heavily deciding on the theme and overall feel of her album, choosing between modern pop or country. It has already been established that Swift's musical career propelled to the top charts when she set country music aside and explored modern pop.

So where is the "Blank Space" singer staying while brainstorming for her album? The report further revealed that an eyewitness saw Swift staying close to Nashville to stay away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi.

Taylor Swift's new album is expected to be released by the end of 2017. However, Swift's official label has yet to give a statement regarding the matter.
