Taylor Swift wrote her latest single, ‘Carolina’ while she was working on her 2020 album, ‘Folklore,’ and it was produced by Aaron Dessner.
The song serves as the theme song for Olivia Newman’s newest film, ‘Where The Crawdads Sing’, for which Reese Witherspoon served as the executive producer.
Check out the different versions of the musical videos video:
Aaron Dessner, with whom Swift collaborated on her two most recent albums, ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’, produced the song. The song was recorded in one take, just like songs were, back in the 1950s, when the movie is set, utilising instruments that were only available before 1953.
Swift said she ‘wanted to create something haunting and ethereal to match this mesmerising story’ in a statement announcing the song’s release (via Consequence).
The singer attended the Beacon Theatre in New York to talk about her short film ‘All Too Well’. Swift spoke with Mike Mills for an hour about her methods as a filmmaker at the event, which also featured a screening of the 15-minute movie.
Taylor also said that she’d be interested in doing more movies and that it would be super fun acting, directing and producing movies.
