The pop diva released a bizarre video Thursday morning in which a jumble of letters flies out of a crimson vault.
Swift, like Twenty One Pilots, is fond of dropping hints and Easter eggs, so it’s no surprise that the letters seem to hint at a Bridgers collaboration.
The surname of the “Kyoto” singer, for instance, appears in one of the clusters of letters. Meanwhile, “Phoebe” is spelled out in its entirety by the beginning letters of lines 2–7.
Since her early master recordings were purchased by prominent manager Scooter Braun, who Swift has accused of abusing her, she has been working on a series of rerecorded albums.
Swift is expected to continue her current trend of collaborating with alternative artists by working with the Bridgers.
Both of her upcoming 2020 surprise albums, “folklore” and “evermore,” were co-created with The National’s Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff. The evermore playlist also includes performances by The National and HAIM.

Swift re-recorded her 2012 album Red in 2021 and released it under the title Red (Taylor’s Version).
Unreleased tracks penned by Swift years ago were included on the project with new versions of her iconic hits.
In a 2021 episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Swift discussed her time working with Bridgers.
“Phoebe Bridgers is one of my favourite artists,” she gushed. As long as she’s singing it, I’ll give it a chance. I think she has a great voice, and she’s hilarious.
Taylor Swift Loves Collaboration
No one has to be told that Taylor Swift adores working with other artists, be they Colbie Caillat, Ed Sheeran, or Jack Antonoff.
(While we’re here: Jack Antonoff, please concentrate on your own music and stop harassing the pop grrrls.
Stop putting your supposedly unique sound on everyone else’s CDs already! No more ranting, I promise.
But her latest partnership appears tailor-made to make me spend more than I can afford on concert tickets: in a new teaser for her “Red (Taylor’s Version)” album.
Swift gave her followers with a range of word jumbles, one of which spelled the name “Phoebe Bridgers.”
On August 5, Swift posted a film to Instagram in which she hinted about the reissue of her 2012 album Red.
Swift is currently re-recording all of her earlier albums, and Red (Taylor’s Version) is set for release on November 19.
She has been tight-lipped regarding the album’s contents, although she did release a cryptic teaser post for her followers to understand.
After much deciphering, Swifties are convinced that a collaboration with Bridgers is on the horizon.
