Taylor Swift’s latest single is finally here!
The superstar has released ‘Carolina’, the haunting piece that features in the upcoming film Where the Crawdads Sing starring Daisy Edgar-Jones, which is being released July 15. (We did get a little taste of ‘Carolina’ when the trailer came out a few weeks ago but now it’s here in full!)
“About a year & half ago I wrote a song about the story of a girl who always lived on the outside, looking in,” Taylor shares on Twitter.
“Figuratively & literally. The juxtaposition of her loneliness & independence. Her curiosity & fear all tangled up. Her persisting gentleness & the world’s betrayal of it.”
“I wrote this one alone in the middle of the night and then @aarondessner and I meticulously worked on a sound that we felt would be authentic to the moment when this story takes place. I made a wish that one day you would hear it. ‘Carolina’ is out now.”
Producer Aaron Dessner and Taylor have collaborated many times before including on her ‘Folklore’ album.
“As soon as I heard there was a film in the works starring the incredible @daisyedgarjones and produced by the brilliant @reesewitherspoon, I knew I wanted to be a part of it from the musical side,” Taylor wrote.
“I wanted to create something haunting and ethereal to match this mesmerising story.”
And she certainly did! Check it out below:
