Beyonce may be making headlines over pregnancy reports, but the singer and her team clearly have been focusing on new music. The latest of which is Rise Up, from the movie Epic.

The ballad, co-written by Sia and produced by Hit-Boy and Chase N Cashe, surfaced on Wednesday. It's from the new animated film, Epic, which finds Beyonce voicing the character of Queen Tara. In the new song, Beyonce sings: "Some people try to drag you down/Take it from me, stand and be proud/ You're a warrior, you're my warrior/Be who you are."

Rise Up is expected to appear on Beyonce's new album, due out this summer -- though there's no release date yet. She's been previewing some of the new tracks live during her world tour. Last week, the R&B/pop singer previewed Standing on the Sun. The North American leg of her tour gets under way June 28 in Los Angeles.
