Taylor Swift debuts ‘Carolina’ a new song from her upcoming album ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’
Finally, the time we have been waiting for has come. Taylor Swift has finally released the entire version of her original song “Carolina,” which she wrote for the Where the Crawdads Sing film soundtrack after promising its release “soon” more than three months ago.
“Carolina,” starring Daisy Edgar Jones, has been teased in several teasers leading up to its premiere at midnight on Friday (June 24). Swift’s lyrics about the natural world are evocative of Jones’ protagonist Kya, who is raised by herself in the North Carolina marshes after being abandoned by her parents and is subsequently accused of killing a young man with whom she had a sexual relationship.

The 32-year-old pop diva, with her breathy lower register drifting over a tangled web of acoustic instruments, sings, “Into the mist, into the clouds” in the song “Carolina.” I am going to put my fist down and make it matter.
She subsequently sings, “There are places I will never, ever go.” Certain information that is unique to Carolina.
About a year and a half ago, I created a song telling the tale of a girl who felt like an outsider no matter where she went. Swift said on Twitter, “literally and figuratively” when the song was finally released. It is a contrast between her isolation and her self-sufficiency. Her inquisitiveness and apprehension were knotted together. The world’s persistent disregard for her kindness.
After reading Where the Crawdads Sing, the debut novel by Delia Owens that served as the film’s inspiration, Swift was inspired to write the song “Carolina,” which she initially unveiled in March through Instagram. Where the Crawdads Sing is a novel I got utterly lost in when I read it years ago,” the singer gushed. I knew I wanted to be a part of the film musically as soon as I learned there was one in the works starring the wonderful @daisyedgarjones and produced by the brilliant @reesewitherspoon.
“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.”
