The track is taken from the soundtrack of the animated movie 'Sing'
Reese Witherspoon has covered Taylor Swift for the soundtrack of a new movie.
The actor has transformed the pop star’s hit single ‘Shake It Off’ into an EDM track with comedian Nick Kroll.
The song is featured in the new animated movie Sing, which is released in the UK on January 27. The soundtrack also features a Latin version of Daft Punk’s ‘Around The World’ and a punk song called ‘I Don’t Wanna’, which is sung by Scarlett Johansson and Beck Bennett.

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift unveiled their new duet ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’, taken from the upcoming soundtrack to Fifty Shades Darker.
The track from the ‘1989’ sensation and the former One Direction turned solo star is fittingly sultry and seductive, slick R&B banger from the S&M-obsessed movie.
It is the first new track Swift has released since her 2014 album ‘1989’. It’s reported that she is working on the follow-up to that record and has recruited Drake to help her create an “edgier” new album, according to a report.Last month it was reported that the pair were working together on “different” but “catchy” new music. Now The Sun claims to have been informed that their new music is inspired by hip-hop and R&B.
The tabloid quotes an unnamed source as saying: “Taylor is always looking at ways to grow as an artist and really wants to try something different and unexpected for the next album. She’s not afraid of experimenting so is working with a lot of different faces to see if she suits a new sound.”
The unnamed source is also quoted as saying: “The remix of her song ‘Bad Blood’ had a less pop vibe — especially once Kendrick Lamar featured on it — and was a big hit. So she thinks her fans will like her going in this direction.”
“Drake has been her friend for a while and it seemed a no-brainer that she would spend time in the studio with him. As well as writing with Taylor, he’s producing a few tracks and even lent his vocals to one song. It’s a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds.”
Neither Swift nor Drake has responded to rumours of a collaboration.
