Taylor Swift & Andrew Lloyd Webber Co-Wrote a New Song, “Beautiful Ghosts,” for “Cats”
Taylor Swift has co-written an original song with Andrew Lloyd Webber for the upcoming movie adaptation of <i>Cats.</i> According to a newly released video, Swift penned the lyrics for the song, which is titled “Beautiful Ghosts,” while Webber wrote the music. “There was an ambition and an aspiration to have an original song in the movie,” Swift says. “Just very much this understanding of, ‘Let’s write the best song we can.'” Lloyd Webber added that Swift wrote the lyrics “then and there, more or less” after he played her his music. “Beautiful Ghosts” is sung by the character of Victoria in <i>Cats</i>, who’s played in the movie by Royal Ballet ballerina Francesca Hayward–but Swift, who plays Bombalurina in the film, does sing a studio version of the song. <i>Cats</i> arrives in theaters on December 20.
