Missing Taylor Swift lately? Guess what, Swifties? The trailer for the highly anticipated film Where the Crawdads Sing is finally here and Taylor has graced its soundtrack with one of her original songs.
On March 22, the drama film officially dropped its trailer for the world to see. It’s produced by Reese Witherspoon together with her company, Hello Sunshine. The audiences were treated to a first look at the movie which includes Swift’s song playing in the backdrop.
Taylor took to Instagram on the same day and captioned her post of the trailer, “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.”
The Grammy winner added that she wrote the song “Carolina” all by herself. However, she asked her friend @aarondessner to produce it. She explained that she wanted to create a song that was “haunting” and “ethereal” to match the said film. She also informed her fans that they’ll be hearing the full version of the song soon. In the meantime, she encouraged them to check out the trailer of the said movie.
The movie is actually based on a novel with the same title. It stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Harris Dickinson, David Strathaim, and Taylor John Smith. According to a press release, Where the Crawdads Sing “tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect.”
The plot added, “As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.”
Where the Crawdads Sing debuts on theatres on July 15.
