Swift shared the artwork and a snippet of the track from her social media accounts just before midnight.
The pop superstars take turns in delivering their lines. “”Baby, baby, I feel crazy/Up all night, all night and every day/Give me something, oh, but you say nothing/What is happening tonight?” Then her collaborator and former One Direction star takes over: “I don’t wanna live forever/’Cause I know I’ll be living in pain.”
Fifty Shades Darker hits theaters Feb. 10.
This is the collab no-one saw coming.
“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” is Swift’s first new release as a vocalist in 2016 and the first taste of her music post-1989. And it’s the first single from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, which is due to drop Feb. 10 through Republic Records.
The song was written specifically for the feature film by Swift, Jack Antonoff & Sam Dew and produced by Antonoff.
