Lending their musical talents to Disney films has scored hits and awards for artists like Randy Newman, Elton John, Christina Aguilara and Sting. Now Alanis Morissette has teamed with the entertainment giant, writing ‘I Remain’ for the upcoming film ‘Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.’

The movie, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley and Gemma Arterton, was a natural vehicle for Morissette, who penned the song about Arterton’s princess character. “It’s an honor to write from the voice of an empowered princess about a love that empowers them both to new heights, healing and consciousness,” Morissette said in a statement. “The song wrote itself and this story was the ultimate muse.”

‘I Remain’ — co-written with Mike Elizondo, who worked with Morissette on ‘Wunderkind,’ her track from ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian’ — brings a Middle Eastern flavor and a soft backbeat to a dark and enigmatic flavor. Though written directly for the film, the song is vintage Morissette.
