Taylor Swift unveiled a clip of her new song, “Carolina,” in the first look at the upcoming film Where the Crawdads Sing.
In a post shared on Instagram, Taylor wrote, “Where The Crawdads Sing is a book I got absolutely lost in when I read it years ago. 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.”
“I wrote the song “Carolina” alone and asked my friend @aarondessner to produce it,” she continued. “I wanted to create something haunting and ethereal to match this mesmerizing story. You’ll hear it fully soon, but for now check out the @crawdadsmovie trailer for a clip!”
The film, which is an adaptation of Delia Owens’ bestselling novel, stars Daisy Edgar-Jones as a young woman named Kya who was abandoned in the marshes of North Carolina and had to raise herself.
