Stream both tracks ahead of the singer's new album release
Two new Rihanna tracks have surfaced online.
Entitled ‘As Real As You And Me’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’, the songs are set to feature on the ‘Home’ soundtrack, a new animated movie from Dreamworks. The star also features in film, leading her voice for one of the lead characters.
The songs follow on from recent single ‘Towards The Sun’, which also features on the soundtrack.
Meanwhile, Rihanna says that her “soulful” new album will sound “timeless”.
Speaking to MTV, the singer said she wanted to record an album she could “perform in 15 years”, and revealed she had grown tired of some of her older material. “I’ve made a lot of songs that are just really big songs…they just blow up,” said Rihanna.
“Not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever. I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years. I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years, not any songs that were burnt out. I find that when I get on stage now I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs because they don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”
Rihanna was recently announced as the new face of Dior, joining the likes of actresses Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard. The singer will appear in the fourth episode of the French fashion label’s Secret Garden Spring 2015 video series. The film and print campaign features models walking around the Palace of Versailles in Dior gowns. Rihanna has already fronted brands such as Gucci, Emporio Armani and Balmain.
