Nicky Youre has released his new single, “Found”, taken from the Netflix animated film, The Magician’s Elephant today. Written by 14-time Academy Award-nominated songwriter Diane Warren, the track is accompanied by a lyric video which offers a sneak peek of the film, out March 17th. Watch it now below.
Speaking about “Found,” Nicky says, “I’ve always wanted to be a part of a movie somehow. So, when I got asked to sing a song written by the Diane Warren in an animated movie (my favorite type of movie), the answer was a quick and easy yes. I think lyrically, the song felt like something that I would potentially write myself, so I was able to connect to it in that way. I also pushed myself to hit notes that I hadn’t tried to hit before towards the end of this song. There were a couple moments while recording it that I said out loud ‘I didn’t know I could do that.’ I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this wonderful movie and I hope people give it a watch on March 17!”
Diane Warren, who has won a Grammy, Emmy, two Golden Globe awards, and three consecutive Billboard Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year, adds, “When I wrote the song ‘Found’ for THE MAGICIAN’S ELEPHANT, I wanted to write a song about how good it feels to find your family, whoever that is and whoever understands and loves you. Those are the ones you need to find and who you want to be found by.”
