As fans eagerly await news of her new album, Beyonce has confirmed plans to release another track from alternative projects, this time, a single from new animated movie, Epic.

Beyonce will release new single 'Rise Up' from the fantasy movie, in which she stars as Queen Tara after the film's release on 24 May 2013. The single was penned by Australian star Sia, who has penned huge hits for some of the biggest stars in music - most notably 'Diamonds' by Rihanna.

'Rise Up' will be the fourth Beyonce release of 2013 - none of which have been confirmed as appearing on her next full-length album. Already this year she has released divisive urban track 'Bow Down/I Been On', Pepsi promotional tune 'Grown Woman' and H&M advert soundtrack, 'Standing In The Sun'.

Beyonce does not feature on the single's artwork, which will be loved by fans of fairies and flowers everywhere. Check it out below.

Currently touring the UK on the British leg of her Mrs Carter world tour, Beyonce recently teamed up with an unlikely duet partner at her Manchester gig this week, picking 2009 X Factor winner Joe McElderry from the audience to help her sing her 2011 'Love On Top' hit.

The 'Crazy In Love' singer was so impressed by Joe's vocals that she knelt down on the stage in order to let him sing some more of the song, saying, "Oh my. You sound beautiful!"
