If you’re one of the 45 million views on Taylor Swift’s “ME!” video, you may already know the title of Taylor’s new album.
In an interview with the Zach Sang Show, Swift said the album title is hidden somewhere in the video along with the second single. Some Swifties seem pretty set on figuring it out. With so many visuals in the Dave Meyers directed video, it may be harder than expected.
“I like to plan things out, I like to plan little fun clues for people,” Swift tells Sang over the phone. The singer goes on to describe her process for releasing lead singles. “A lot of the time I’ll pick a first single because I like the feeling that it conveys, knowing that there’s a lot more on the album that’s very different from that first single— which is something that I think the fans have picked up on at this point.”
Finally, Zolot asks: “Has anyone found the name of the album title yet in the music video?”
“Yeah, definitely! There are a few people who have gotten it,” Swift says, giggling. “I’m not gonna tell you who!”
Our favorite theory so far is Kaleidoscope:
One of the theories about the title of TS7 is kaleidoscope and that is absolute genius!!
1. There are obvious kaleidoscopes in the #MEmusicvideo.
2. Swarm of butterflies = kaleidoscope
3. Kaleidoscope can be used as a metaphor for change!! @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 pic.twitter.com/rdemke0Nwg

One Swiftie even screenshotted an interesting message on the back of the video’s opening snake.

This is also the only theory Swift has actually acknowledged. In an interview with Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery, Swift was asked by the host if “Kaleidoscope” was the title of the album.
“I’m not gonna comment because I really do respect those theories so much, but I’m going to tell them all the information when I tell them [the fans]!” Swift said with a knowing laugh.
What do you think? Is TS7 officially going to be named Kaleidoscope? What are your theories? Let us know!
