Demi Lovato released a new song, “Let It Go,” which will be featured on Disney's Frozen soundtrack.
According to the Examiner, “Let It Go” was originally a ballad by Broadway singer Idina Menzel (Elsa), but Lovato was ready to put her own spin on the song.
MTV reports that the song isn't just about a frozen blizzard – there's a much deeper meaning to it. Lovato sings about standing up to your fears, even if it's as harsh as a blizzard. Kristen Bell, who voices the character of Anna in the film alongside Menzel, claimed that the song is all about conquering one's fears, which is a big part of the film. In the song, Lovato tells her listeners to "Let it go, let it go, can't hold it back anymore."
Bell continued, describing the film's plot. "The movie is about a pair of sisters - one who has the power to freeze things, and it happens when she is fearful or angry. And because of feeling terrified to show that to the world, she sort of runs away and freezes the town accidentally. I play the sister Anna, who makes it her mission to travel across these snowy lands and bring her sister back amidst the fact that they're fighting and kind of at that point hate each other. It's kind of how they make up and find love in the end."
Lovato's album Demi was released last May, and she's already working on her next single, “Neon Lights.”
Disney's Frozen will open in theaters Thanksgiving weekend.
