Taylor Swift’s ‘Carolina’ Lyrics Are Full of Chilling References to ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’

#Taylor #Swifts #Carolina #Lyrics #Full #Chilling #References #Crawdads #Sing

Taylor Swift has released “Carolina,” a new original song she penned for the upcoming film Where the Crawdads Sing. Produced by her Folklore collaborator Aaron Dessner of The National, the dark and eerie folk track echoes the mystery and drama of the highly anticipated book-to-screen adaptation.

Based on the bestselling novel by Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing follows Kya, the “Marsh Girl” who’s survived alone in the marshes of North Carolina after being abandoned as a child. When a young man named Chase Andrews is found dead, she becomes a suspect for his presumed murder. Normal People and Fresh star Daisy Edgar-Jones stars as Kya, while Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine produces and Olivia Newman (First Match) directs.

Swift references the premise through her song, especially in the last verse: “Oh Carolina knows / Why for years they’ve said / That I was guilty as sin / And sleep in a liar’s bed.” It seems like she did her homework; when the singer-songwriter teased “Carolina” along with the movie trailer earlier this year, she shared that she was hooked on Crawdads immediately.

“Where The Crawdads Sing is a book I got absolutely lost in when I read it years ago,” Swift wrote on Instagram. “As soon as I heard there was a film in the works starring the incredible @daisyedgarjones and produced by the brilliant @reesewitherspoon, I knew I wanted to be a part of it from the musical side. I wrote the song ‘Carolina’ alone and asked my friend @aarondessner to produce it. I wanted to create something haunting and ethereal to match this mesmerizing story.”

Edgar-Jones also loved the novel immediately. The actress previously told ELLE, “I read the book in a day and a half, and just fell so deeply in love with her and her world, and what the story was talking about, this idea of loneliness. She’s such a wonderfully complex character—there’s a load of stuff to delve really deep into.”

Swift was also recently linked to another book-to-screen adaptation, Amazon Prime Video’s The Summer I Turned Pretty, based on Jenny Han’s YA novel of the same name. Swift shared a first glimpse at “This Love (Taylor’s Version)” in the trailer, then released the full track shortly after. Many of her songs are also included in the series, which is now streaming.

Read the full lyrics to “Carolina” below.

Oh Carolina creeks
Running through my veins
Lost I was born
Lonesome I came
Lonesome I’ll always stay

Carolina knows
Why for years I roam
Free as these birds
Light as whispers
Carolina knows

And you didn’t see me here
No, they never did see me here

And she’s in my dreams
Into the mist, into the clouds
Don’t leave
I make a fist, I make it count
And there are places I will never ever go
And things that only Carolina will ever know

Carolina stains
On the dress she left
Indelible scars
Pivotal marks
Blue as the life she fled

Carolina pines
Won’t you cover me?
Hide me like robes
Down the back road
Muddy these webs we weave

And you didn’t see me here
No, they never did see me

And she’s in my dreams
Into the mist, into the clouds
Don’t leave
I make a fist, I make it count
And there are places I will never ever go
And things that only Carolina will ever know

And you didn’t see me here
They never did see me here
No you didn’t seem me here
They never saw me

Oh Carolina knows
Why for years they’ve said
That I was guilty as sin
And sleep in a liar’s bed
But the sleep comes fast
And I’ll meet no ghosts
It’s between me
The sand and the sea
Carolina knows

Adele Wears Stunning Schiaparelli Gown During Performance In London's Hyde Park

#Adele #Wears #Stunning #Schiaparelli #Gown #Performance #London039s #Hyde #Park

On Friday night, multi-Grammy Award winner Adele headlined at London’s BST Hyde Park Festival, taking the stage in front of a live audience for time in five years. For the momentous occasion, Adele wore an absolutely stunning Schiaparelli gown. The floor-length black velvet dress had long sleeves with shoulder cutouts and a halter neck. It was cinched at the waist with a gold belt, and glittering fabric made up the skirt under the splitting bodice.

The singer’s hair was swept into an elegant updo with a few delicate tendrils around her face. She was wearing star-shaped gold earrings covered in pearls, and a gold ring in a bow shape. For make up, she wore her classic cat eye liner with a some shimmering eyeshadow for a little more of a glam touch.

The night was an emotional one for Adele, and Page Six reports that she she was overcome before even finishing her first song.

“My God, I’m back at home,” she told the audience of 65,000 people. “It’s so strange to be in front of a crowd again. I get so nervous before each show but I love being up here.”

Adele’s set was two hours long and included her newer tracks “Easy On Me,” “Oh My God,” and “I Drink Wine.” But she was very attentive to the audience throughout. Many had stood out in the heat for hours to attend the show, and Adele stopped the concert four times for concertgoers who needed medical attention.

At one point, the music icon revealed that she was swearing black anti slip socks under the her gorgeous dress.

“I was told it was going to be slippery so wore these just in case,” she told the crowd, before continuing on with the show.

“Virgil Abloh: ‘Figures Of Speech’” Exhibit Invites Viewers To “Question Everything”

#Virgil #Abloh #Figures #Speech #Exhibit #Invites #Viewers #Question

The show — loosely broken into sections like architecture, music, design, and fashion —  still holds the clothing racks full of pieces from Abloh’s first fashion venture, Pyrex Vision, and the Milan-based label that he founded in 2013, Off-White. There is still the striped dress Abloh created for Beyoncé’s 2018 Vogue cover shoot (it didn’t appear in the magazine). There is still the Nike shoe display from when the sportswear giant enlisted the multidisciplinary creative to redesign 10 of its most famous footwear styles in 2017. Yet, unlike typical exhibits, there is barely any signage accompanying the pieces, as if inviting viewers to be a “tourist or a purist,” a point of view that Abloh employed during his design process. Depending on how much you know about Abloh, or whether you want to consult the brochure the museum hands you upon entry or make your own assumptions about the items displayed, you can land in either of the camps.
