Alanis Morissette has always traded off screen and sound booth since she was a child. The two somewhat converge on her new track "I Remain," which serves as the credits track to forthcoming film "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time," out May 28.
Watch the trailer, to the left. Track is embedded below.
It's one of the first few newly penned tracks from the Canadian singer-songwriter since her 2008 release "Flavors of Entanglement." It was co-written by Mike Elizondo, who has collaborated with Morissette on several other tracks before.
Regal lyrics on missions, 10-cent words and lots of old-world symbolism dominate this mid-tempo, Middle Easter-influenced love song, epic on sound and length, appropriately. Morissette writes from the perspective of a princess -- not just any old princess, but from the one portrayed in the film by the stunning Gemma Arterton.
"It's an honor to write from the voice of an empowered princess about a love that empowers them both to new heights, healing and consciousness. The song wrote itself and this story was the ultimate muse," said Morissette in a statement.
It's a little easy-listening-radio, with no rock, but still has the ginormity going on that made Leona Lewis' "I See You" from Avatar so memorable.
"Prince of Persia" also stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Ben Kingsley.
