While her Kanye West and Paul McCartney-assisted single “FourFiveSeconds” continues to climb up the charts, Rihanna has just randomly dropped a brand new track titled, “Towards The Sun“! Premiered on BBC Radio 1 earlier this monring, “Towards The Sun” is the first song we’re hearing from the upcoming soundtrack to Ri‘s animated DreamWorks film Home, which is scheduled to hit theaters on March 27th. Unlike its predecessor, “Towards The Sun” sees RiRi laying down her soaring vocals on top of a drum-marching tribal production much like her favored Coldplay collaboration, “Princess Of China.”
“Turn your face towards the sun / let the shadows fall behind you / turn your back/ just carry on, and the shadows will never find you,” Rihanna sings on the chorus. The song is a straight-up empowerment anthem, but it also carries some dark elements throughout with its haunting coo’s in the distance. If you weren’t feeling “FourFiveSeconds” then this should be more up your alley. Listen below! What do you guys think?
