Taylor Swift Teases New Original Song "Beautiful Ghosts" from 'Cats'
It was co-written with Andrew Lloyd Webber
Published Nov 14, 2019Taylor Swift has unveiled a teaser for "Beautiful Ghosts," the original song she co-wrote with Andrew Lloyd Webber for the upcoming film adaptation of Cats.
The song was previously teased in a video clip featuring Swift, Webber and the film's director Tom Hooper. In the segment, Swift said that she drew inspiration for the song from T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, which inspired the original musical.
"What I couldn't believe was the extraordinary beauty of these lyrics that Taylor had written," Hooper added. "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."
The song is sung by Francesca Hayward in the film, but Swift's version appears in the end credits.
Preview the track below. It arrives in full at midnight.
Cats will be in theatres on December 20.
