On December 26 the movie “Cats” opens in theaters. Taylor Swift is in the cast playing Bombalurina, but could not help but give her musical touch! To this end, she wrote the original “Beautiful Ghosts” in partnership with Andrew Lloyd Webber, who was responsible for the tracks already known in the theater.
In the movie, “Beautiful Ghosts” will be sung by Francesca Hayward, but the voice version of Taylor will appear in the credits. On video, you can see behind the scenes of the recordings and excerpt of the song. Check out:
“When I first read the script, the first thing I said was, ‘We have to have a song for Victoria,’” said composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. “Beautiful Ghosts [now] is an incredibly important and central part of the whole movie.”
“What I couldn’t believe was the extraordinary beauty of these lyrics Taylor had written,” said director Tom Hooper. “It was as if someone had entered the movie that I was in the middle of production and… reflected to me a deep understanding of what we are trying to do with the movie. It was totally exciting, ”he complimented.
