Shortly after Swift's feud with Braun went public in 2019, she performed at the American Music Awards wearing a white shirt that had her album titles written on it. At that point, Swift had seven albums, but her performance included eight dancers, which could signify the eighth lost album. In a performance of her song "The Man" that was all about responding to her ownership battle with Braun, the reference to a mysterious eighth album could mean that Swift had been thinking about "Karma" when she started her rerecordings.
With two rerecordings already released, we know that not only do we get Taylor's Versions of each song, but we also get From the Vault tracks, which are songs that didn't make the original albums. Swift, being ever so careful and precise with her language, could be leaving us a major hint about "Karma." Once again going back to Swift's "LWYMMD" video, fans pointed out there's a scene where Swift is inside a vault. In a video that already references "Karma," the vault connection gives me hope that she'll be releasing her secret album buried the deepest inside it.
While we don't know the exact order or timeline of Swift's rerecordings, fans have another theory about when we can expect each one. Referencing the graffiti scene in "The Man" music video, fans believe we'll get to hear the albums in the order that they're written on the wall. So far, Swift has moved clockwise, releasing "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" and "Red (Taylor's Version)." According to fans, Swift has been dropping Easter eggs suggesting that "Speak Now" is next, following the order. If fans are right, after "Speak Now," we should get "Reputation" and then "1989" and "Karma" as a double release.
One thing's for sure: I'm very convinced that this theory is right.
