Hollywood Life points out that August 18 is the three-year anniversary of the day Taylor debuted "Shake it Off" and announced the then forthcoming 1989 album. 

The optimist in us hopes this is part of a cool music release strategy, and not a hacker stirring trouble. 

Some are also theorizing it's part of a rebranding debut on the part of the 27-year-old.

What will happen in Taylor's new chapter in the spotlight?
