Beyonce reveals new song ‘Standing On The Sun’ via advert – listen

The track is the second new song to be released by pop superstar through TV adverts

Beyonce has revealed new song ‘Standing On The Sun’ via a TV advert for high street retailers H&M. Scroll down to hear the song now.

The track is the second new song to be revealed by Beyonce in 2013, with her previous release ‘Grown Woman’ coming via a Pepsi advert which ran during the half-time show of this year’s Super Bowl. ‘Standing On The Sun’ was written by Sia and produced by Greg Kurstin according to the songwriter’s Twitter. There is currently no confirmed release date for either ‘Standing On The Sun’ or ‘Grown Woman’.

Meanwhile, Beyonce has also banned all press photographers from her current The Mrs Carter Show world tour. Only one approved snapper will be taking photos of the singer, supposedly because of the ‘unflattering’ photos released after her Super Bowl performance earlier in the year.


Beyonce plays her first UK show of this tour at the Birmingham LG Arena on Friday (April 26) with the tour selling out 12 minutes after going on sale back in February. Fans who have attended the early legs of the tour have confirmed that no new songs are currently on the setlist.

Beyonce will play:

Birmingham LG Arena (April 26-27)
London O2 Arena (29-30, May 1, 3-5)
Manchester Arena (May 7-9)
Dublin The O2 (11-12)
