This morning, BBC Radio 1 premiered RiRi's new song, "Towards the Sun," from the upcoming DreamWorks film Home. If you thought "FourFiveSeconds" signaled an entirely new sound for Rihanna, well, think again: Looks like the singer isn't abandoning her signature dark pop notes, and we couldn't be more excited. The track is a soaring, bass-focused synth anthem—one that you would play after climbing to the top of Mt. Everest, or before going into a massive Game of Thrones-esque battle. Or, you know, while getting ready for work in the morning. As Idolator points out, it sounds remarkably similar to her Coldplay collaboration, "Princess of China." Listen below.
