Swifties rejoice, for the Lord and Savior Taylor Swift has finally responded to our prayers! Excitement was in the air when back in March, Taylor Swift announced that she was writing a song for the film “Where the Crawdad’s Sing” based on the popular novel by Delia Owens, and Swift said that she was a huge fan of the book and was excited to hear about the announcement of the production.

Today, Swift dropped the single “Carolina” on her Spotify and You Tube channel, and in her Instagram post she shared that this was a song she had written in 2020 while recording Folklore, and she had asked her long time collaborator Aaron Dessner to produce the track.

“About a year and half ago I wrote a song about an incredible story, the story of a girl who always lived on the outside, looking in. Figuratively and literally. The juxtaposition of her loneliness and independence. Her longing and her stillness. Her curiosity and fear, all tangled up. Her persisting gentleness… and the world’s betrayal of it. I wrote this one alone in the middle of the night and then @aarondessner and I meticulously worked on a sound that we felt would be authentic to the moment in time when this story takes place. I made a wish that one day you would hear it. ‘Carolina’ is out now”
