Rihanna Gives Us Light With 'Towards The Sun'

Get a peek at her 'Home' soundtrack.

Rihanna gets way cinematic with her new single "Towards the Sun," which comes not off her upcoming R8, but the soundtrack for DreamWorks Animation's "Home," to which she lends her voice.

A heroic kind of track, "Towards The Sun" sees Rih singing pure and clear about turning your face toward the sun and leaving the shadows behind you. You know, like a flower is wont to do.

Hear "Towards The Sun" now!

Rihanna curated the soundtrack to the film, in which the singer plays Tip, an ordinary girl who makes friends with an alien named O. Did we mention it's animated? Makes more sense now, huh?

Charli XCX, Jennifer Lopez and Kiesza also contributed to the soundtrack.

"Home" hits theaters on March 27.
