Taylor Swift has teamed with Zayn Malik for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” for the Fifty Shades Darker film and soundtrack. The song is the the first single from the project, due on February 10, 2017, the same day the film opens in theaters.
The song was written specifically for the soundtrack by Swift, Malik, Jack Antonoff and Sam Dew. Antonoff also produced the song. It is the first new Swift single since 2014’s 1989.
However, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” isn’t the first new Swift music in two years. She has co-written “This Is What You Came For” with Calvin Harris that was released earlier this year. She also penned Little Big Town’s latest single, “Better Man,” which will appear on their seventh studio album, The Breaker, in February 2017.
Fifty Shades Darker is the follow-up to the hugely successful Fifty Shades of Grey, released in February 2015. The film stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey and is the second in a planned trilogy.
