Taylor Swift has shared a clip of a new song she has written for the upcoming film adaptation of Where The Crawdads Sing.
The pop megastar said she “absolutely lost herself” reading the book and wanted to be part of the musical side of the production.
Swift said she wanted the track, titled “Carolina,” to be “haunting and ethereal” to fit the tone of the story.
The film, starring Daisy Edgar Jones and produced by Reese Witherspoon, is based on the best-selling novel by Delia Owens.
It follows the story of Kya, a young girl living alone in the North Carolina swamps who becomes involved in a local murder mystery.
“Where The Crawdads Sing is a book I absolutely lost myself in reading years ago,” Swift wrote on Instagram, sharing the film’s new trailer.
“When I heard there was a movie in the works starring the incredible @daisyedgarjones and produced by the brilliant @reesewitherspoon, I knew musically I wanted to be a part of it.
“I wrote the song “Carolina” by myself and asked my friend @aarondessner to produce it.
“I wanted to create something haunting and ethereal that would fit with this fascinating story. You’ll be hearing it in full soon, but watch the @crawdadsmovie trailer for a clip now.
