Is Taylor Swift about to release new music?

Taylor Swift has returned to social media after wiping her Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and website on Friday.

The singer teased her fans by posting a video clip that appears to be of a snake.

Then Joseph Kahn, who's made several of the star's music videos, retweeted her post, along with a smiley face.

Rumours heated up on Friday that a new Swift track was imminent after the star wiped her social media, removing all trace of photography from her Instagram and unfollowing everyone she was previously following on Twitter.

The musician has had a quiet year so far after retreating from the public eye following a much-discussed relationship with the actor Tom Hiddleston.
