In "Carolina," Swift sings about loneliness and "being on the outside, looking in."

"About a year & a half ago I wrote a song about the story of a girl who always lived on the outside, looking in. Figuratively and literally. The juxtaposition of her loneliness & independence. Her curiosity & fear all tangled up. Her persisting gentleness & the world's betrayal of it," the star tweeted.

Swift wrote and recorded "Carolina" for the upcoming film Where the Crawdads Sing. The movie is based on the Delia Owens novel and follows Catherine "Kya" Clarke (Daisy Edgar-Jones), a young woman living in a North Carolina marsh who becomes a suspect in the murder of a popular athlete in her small town.

Where the Crawdads Sing is written by Lucy Alibar and directed by Olivia Newman, with Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter as producers.

The film opens in theaters July 15.
