The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey promised to make things Fifty Shades Darker, so, naturally, they got goth lord Taylor Swift and menacing shadow dweller Zayn to put their sultry spin on the soundtrack.
The new duo released "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," a slow jam that has Swift breathless and Zayn showing off his ever-so-delicate falsetto on Friday at midnight.
The song, produced by Jack Antonoff, is available on iTunes, or, if you're a cheapo, you can listen to this 30-second teaser on repeat.
Here's a pic that Zayn posted of Swift's cat, Olivia, to celebrate. We're sure that girlfriend Gigi Hadid (and Taylor squad member) is lingering somewhere outside the frame.
Pal Lorde was pumped about the release, congratulating her friends with a series of tweets:
