Taylor Swift is set to release a new song called “Sweeter Than Fiction” on the soundtrack of the upcoming film One Chance.

According to a report from The Daily Mail:

Taylor Swift was so moved when she saw a film that charts Paul Potts’s journey from amateur opera singer to unlikely maestro of a TV reality show that she decided to write a song for it.

The number, Sweeter Than Fiction, will be unveiled next Friday when the movie One Chance, starring James Corden as Potts, has its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The song — which Taylor wrote with Jack Antonoff, guitarist for the band Fun — plays during the movie’s final credits, but Taylor might be persuaded to give a live rendering following the gala screening in Toronto. James Corden might even do a duet with her.

Actually, it’s a good, poppy song that makes the point that ‘life is sweeter than fiction’. That’s certainly true of Potts’s rise from obscurity to national attention on Britain’s Got Talent.

Movie impresario Harvey Weinstein graciously credited Simon Cowell for getting Taylor involved in the soundtrack.

‘Simon knows her through the One Direction connection and he thought she’d be touched by the film, and he was right because she was,’ Weinstein said when I bumped into him in New York. I gather Taylor’s looking at screenplays because she has hopes of making her big-screen debut. There are certainly one or two musical films being developed that would suit her down to the ground.

The article doesn’t mention anything about a release of the song to digital retailers like iTunes or Amazon, but hopefully we’ll be able to download the song after the film’s premiere on Friday September 9 at the Toronto International Film Festival.

If the song doesn’t get an individual release, it will surely be available on the film’s soundtrack.

The song will be played in the final credits of the movie as mentioned above by the Daily Mail. If it’s the first song to be played in the final credits, it will be eligible for the Academy Award for Best Original Song, unlike Swift’s other soundtrack song, “Safe and Sound,” from The Hunger Games (2012), which was the final song to be played during the movie’s end credits.

Thanks, Daily Mail.

    I feel that Taylor Swift should do a cover of the Classic Dolly Parton song Jolene. With most of her songs in her catalog I feel that it would suit her well.

      That is a great idea! Taylor is better when she’s country and you can’t get more country than Dolly Parton’s Jolene.

    UPDATE VIA PEREZ HILTON: “UPDATE: Swifty’s new song will
    ONLY have a portion of it played during the end credits of the film. The
    complete song itself will NOT be released until later this fall in
    relation to the film. But hey, at least there will be a sampling during
    the screening.”

  • tilds

    I’m pretty sure it’s just a co-write, she won’t actually be singing the song…

    • Ahmed Tarek

      She will be singing the song. Co-writing it has nothing to do with her singing or not.
