Cat's out of the bag! Taylor Swift revealed Thursday that the original song she co-wrote with Andrew Lloyd Webber for the upcoming movie version of Cats will drop Friday at meowed-night--sorry, midnight. “'Beautiful Ghosts' out tomorrow at 12:01 a.m. ET," Swift tweeted, along with a 15-second snippet of the song. The teaser video shows Swift's cat-racter--sorry, character--Bombalurina in silhouette as she sings the lyric, "Follow me home if you dare to." It was first revealed last month that Swift and Webber had collaborated on a new Cats track, with Swift penning the lyrics and Webber composing the music. "There was an ambition and an aspiration to have an original song in the movie," Swift said in a behind-the-scenes video. "Just very much this understanding of, 'Let's write the best song we can.'" While Swift's studio version of "Beautiful Ghosts" will drop as a single, the number is sung in the movie by the character of Victoria, played by Royal Ballet ballerina Francesca Hayward. Cats arrives in theaters on December 20.
