As for Cats, the upcoming 2020 Glastonbury Festival headliner gushed to ET about her opportunity to write and record and an original song for the movie alongside the Broadway musical's legendary creator, Andrew Lloyd Webber. "That alone was just a life-changing dream-come-true moment for me," Swift said of writing "Beautiful Ghosts," which recently earned her a 2020 Golden Globes nomination. "It's one of those songs that I feel like the movie doesn't make sense without that song. It's not like it was just a song that was stuck into the film. This is a character that is a lead character in the film, and in the original Broadway production, she doesn't have a song."

Cats heads to theaters nationwide on December 20.
