Niall Horan has been busy on the road alongside Julia Michaels and Maren Morris, but the former One Direction bandmate decided to throw us a bone in the form of a new song called "Finally Free" on Friday (July 6).
Off the soundtrack to the forthcoming animated film, Small Foot, which features a star-studded voice cast made of Channing Tatum, James Corden, and Zendaya, "Finally Free" is an upbeat three-minute record that stays in line with the 24-year-old singer's folky/pop sweet spot, remaining entirely optimistic in the process. "When you're right here beside me, there's nothing else I need/ Your eyes keep me reminded that nothing's out of reach," he sings during the track's heightened hook. "When you're with me, it feels like I'm finally free/ Feels like I'm finally free."
No word on whether or not Horan received an advanced copy of Small Foot, but the 24-year-old singer is throwing his support behind the film regardless. "From the minute I seen a small clip from it, I was in straight away… it's a must see," he tweeted earlier this month. Small Foot hits theaters in September and tells the story of Bigfoot, where a young Yeti (played by Channing Tatum) learns that humans actually exist.
