Emma Stone Credited with Assist on Taylor Swift’s New Song “Florida!!!”

Emma Stone helped good pal Taylor Swift with a song on her new album, The Tortured Poets Department. In the official credits for “Florida!!!,” the Oscar-winning actress is listed as contributing “oddities.”

It’s not entirely clear what Stone’s “oddities” entail, but she received a production credit on the song alongside Florence Welch and Jack Antonoff. “Florida!!!” was co-written by Swift with Welch (of Florence + The Machine), who also sings and plays piano and percussion on the song. Jack Antonoff produced the track, and also played guitar, cello, bass, synthesizer, piano, and drums.

“Florida!!!” is about “what happens when your life doesn’t fit, or your choices you’ve made catch up to you,” Swift told iHeartRadio. She added that the track refers to times when “you’re surrounded by these harsh consequences and judgment, and circumstances did not lead you to where you thought you’d be and you just want to escape from everything you’ve ever known.”

Swift also took inspiration from being a fan of the docuseries Dateline and noticing people who commit crimes “immediately skip town and go to” Florida. The artist continued, “I think when you go through a heartbreak, there’s a part of you that thinks: I want a new name, I want a new life, I don’t want anyone to know where I’ve been or know me at all.”

Earlier this year, Stone spoke on The Graham Norton Show about becoming friends with Swift, remembering how they met at the 2008 Young Hollywood Awards. “We just kept in touch ever since and became great friends,” the actor said.

Their longtime friendship has served as fodder for speculation that Swift’s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) vault track “When Emma Falls in Love” was written about Stone. When asked about the song by Entertainment Tonight, the actor said, “You have to ask [Taylor]!”


Swift is about to return to the road for the UK/European (get tickets here) and second North American leg (grab your seats here) of “The Eras Tour.”
