Is Taylor Swift’s ‘Out of the Woods’ Her Next Single? [PHOTO]

Taylor Swift is once again dropping clues to get us psyched for ‘1989’ (as if we weren’t excited enough already)! Taking to Instagram yesterday (Oct. 8), the ‘Shake It Off’ singer posted a pic of a forested area with a white ‘5,’ heart, and the word ‘woods’ emblazoned on the pic. She captioned the elusive photo “5 days. #1989.”

Of course, this immediately prompted fans to start guessing about what the big reveal was, with many assuming that ‘Out of the Woods’ will be her next single. That would be the obvious guess, considering the Instagram post shows both a picture of woods as well as the actual word itself. And Taylor has already spoken out about the ‘1989’ track, which Rolling Stone hinted was about her relationship with Harry Styles.

“Every day was a struggle,” she said about the relationship that inspired the tune. “Forget making plans for life – we were just trying to make it to next week.”

The track also touches on the time that the two got into a snowmobile accident and has to go to the emergency room, which Taylor alluded to in the lyrics: “Remember when you hit the brakes too soon / Twenty stitches in a hospital room.”

And if that wasn’t enough to get you pumped, Swifties, Jack Antonoff (who co-wrote the tune with Taylor) even expressed just how good the song is:

While we not-so-patiently wait for T. Swift’s big announcement, here’s an awesome video of her covering Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’ to tide us over (pun very much intended). Check it out below!

UPDATE: Taylor clarified her Instagram tease on Twitter, writing:
