News just broke that Taylor Swift has co-written a new song for the upcoming Cats movie and now the singer has released a preview of the song “Beautiful Ghosts.”
Universal Pictures dropped a featurette about the making of the song and it includes a clip of Taylor recording it in the studio.
“Beautiful Ghosts” will be performed by Francesca Hayward in the movie and Taylor has recorded her own version for the film’s end credits.
“When I first read the screenplay, the first thing I said was, ‘We have to have a song for Victoria,’” composer Andrew Lloyd Webber said. “Beautiful Ghosts [is now ] an incredibly important and central part of the whole film.”
“What I couldn’t believe was the extraordinary beauty of these lyrics that Taylor had written,” director Tom Hooper said. “It was as if someone had come into the film I was in the middle of making and … had reflected back to me a profound understanding of what we are trying to do with the movie. It was utterly thrilling.”
Taylor added, “You can’t write a modern lyric for Cats. So if you can’t get T.S. Eliot, get T.S… I’m here for you.”
