Here's Taylor Swift's New 'Cats' Song "Beautiful Ghosts"
It was co-written with Andrew Lloyd Webber
Published Nov 15, 2019After giving us a tease earlier today, Taylor Swift has fully delivered her new song "Beautiful Ghosts."
The original song was co-written with Andrew Lloyd Webber for the upcoming film adaptation of Cats, and you can hear it down below.
As previously reported, Swift drew inspiration for the song from T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, which inspired the original Cats musical.
"What I couldn't believe was the extraordinary beauty of these lyrics that Taylor had written," Cats 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."
In the actual film, "Beautiful Ghosts" is sung by Francesca Hayward, but Swift's version appears in the end credits. But you can hear it for yourself now.
Cats hits theatres on December 20.
Of course, the new song arrives mere hours after Swift claimed Scott Borchetta and music manager Scooter Braun are blocking her attempts to perform her old music.
