Jimmy Fallon desperately searches for clues about Taylor Swift’s next album

Jimmy Fallon attempted to fill a “Blank Space” in Taylor Swift’s discography on “The Tonight Show” Thursday.

Fallon, who interviewed the “Red” singer ahead of her final album in 2021, tried to find out Swift’s next release a bit with The Roots Black Thought frontman, aka Tariq Trotter.

The host wondered if Swift’s “1989” and “Speak Now” re-recordings would both be released on Friday.

Swift remade her first six albums after music manager Scooter Braun bought and sold the master recordings for them, an action she later criticized.

Black Thought then asked Fallon how he would know the answer to a “rumor”.

Fallon, who claimed that “clues are everywhere” about album release dates, preceded by unearthing a number of clues scattered throughout Swift’s music videos and online merchandise store.

The host, who sped up the first clue, asked Black Thought if he “followed” his rant.

“Yeah, no,” the singer replied.

Fallon isn’t the only late-night entertainer who loves the “Lover” singer’s music.

“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert asked Swift about the meaning of her song “Hey Stephen” from her 2021 album “Fearless.”

Colbert played a 2009 clip from “The Colbert Report” where he wondered if Swift’s original version of “Hey Stephen” was about him.

“‘Hey Stephen’ has to be about me, just like ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ has to be about Lucille Ball flying in a plane with all her jewelry,” Colbert said in 2021. “To believe anything else, one would have to be rich in acid.

Colbert then asked Swift, who wrote the song for country music singer Stephen Barker Liles, if the song was about him.

“No,” Swift replied quickly. “I mean, I first recorded this song in 2008, I think I was around 18.”

“Yeah, I was younger too,” Colbert joked.

The full clip of Colbert’s interview is below.
