Taylor Swift Releases “Carolina” from the Where The Crawdads Sing Movie Soundtrack

Where The Crawdads Sing arrives in theaters on July 15th – but Taylor Swift‘s song from the movie is available now!

Talking about “Carolina,” Taylor shares, “About a year and half ago I wrote a song about an incredible story, the story of a girl who always lived on the outside, looking in. Figuratively and literally. The juxtaposition of her loneliness and independence. Her longing and her stillness. Her curiosity and fear, all tangled up. Her persisting gentleness… and the world’s betrayal of it. I wrote this one alone in the middle of the night and then Aaron Dessner and I meticulously worked on a sound that we felt would be authentic to the moment in time when this story takes place. I made a wish that one day you would hear it.”

“Carolina” is available now – check out the lyric video which features scenes from the upcoming movie Where The Crawdads Sing.
