Fresh off the heels of his latest single “Shut Me Up”, 23-year-old indie-pop artist Nicky Youre has released his new song “Found” from the Netflix animated film THE MAGICIAN’S ELEPHANT. Listen HERE. Written by 14-time Academy Award-nominated songwriter Diane Warren, “Found” arrives alongside an animated lyric video that offers a sneak peek of the film premiering March 17.
In 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.”
“Found” marks Nicky’s third offering of new music since his breakout hit, RIAA-certified Platinum smash “Sunroof,” which spent 11 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 (peaked at #4), was the most heard song on US radio in 2022, and made various year-end lists including Billboard’s ‘Best 100 Songs of 2022’ and Los Angeles Times’ ‘100 Best Songs (of 2022).’ Nominated for an iHeartRadio Music Award, 2023 is already proving to be another exciting year for the singer/songwriter. Nicky recently announced his first-ever headline shows at Los Angeles’ Moroccan Lounge, which is already sold-out, and New York’s Baby’s All Right on March 30 and April 18, respectively.
