The wait is over, Swifties – Taylor Swift has announced pertinent details of her new album.

“Reputation,” Swift’s sixth album, will be released Nov. 10. The title of the first single hasn’t been revealed, but the song will arrive Thursday evening.

Swift decorated her Instagram page Wednesday afternoon with a few glimpses of the black-and-white cover, which features a stark image of the singer next to several newspaper clippings.

Throughout the week, Swift teased fans with an announcement by erasing all of her social media accounts and then returning with a cryptic image of a slithering snake.

“Reputation” is Swift’s first full album since her Grammy-winning “1989” in 2014.

While she's co-written songs for Little Big Town and Calvin Harris since then, and last year hit the charts with “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” her duet with Zayn Malik on the “Fifty Shades Darker” soundtrack, Swift has mostly remained quiet musically.

Prior to the Super Bowl in February, Swift performed at a DirecTV-sponsored concert in Houston and told the crowd it would be her only live show of 2017.
