Taylor Swift has unveiled her second Midnights video for "Bejeweled", and fans believe the visual, which stars Haim, Laura Dern and more, features multiple hints that Speak Now will be her next re-recorded album.

At midnight last night, Swift unveiled the "Bejeweled" video as the second Midnights visual (following last week's "Anti-Hero" video). The video, written and directed by Swift, features cameos from Haim, Laura Dern, Dita Von Teese, Pat McGrath and Jack Antonoff, and is a spin on Cinderella, a classic fairytale that references midnight a lot.

Before unveiling the video, Swift appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and said that a "psychotic amount" of easter eggs would be in the clip.

Swift fans have already unpacked many of the easter eggs in the video, and believe that many of them point to Speak Now being Swift's next re-recorded album.

Firstly, the opening scene is soundtracked by violins playing "Enchanted", and soon after in the lift, she presses the purple button for floor three (Speak Now is Swift's third album), and while sitting on a clock floating above the stage, the time reads three o'clock (another hint to her third album).

Laura Dern, who plays Swift's step-mother in the Cinderella-inspired clip, also tells Swift to "speak not". Fans have also pointed out that the stage setup in the clip looks a lot like her Speak Now tour stage, and the closing moments of the video also features the melody from "Long Live", another Speak Now song.

Fans have also picked up on the fact the video was released today (25 October), which marks 12 years (12, like midnight!) since Speak Now arrived. There's a lot to unpack.

Last Friday (21 October) Taylor Swift broke two Spotify records, including Midnights being the most-streamed album in a single day, and becoming the most-streamed artist in a single day.
