Happy Feet:)

Lyrics:

Hold on to me
Don’t let me go
Who cares what they see?
Who cares what they know?
Your first name is Free
Last name is Dom
We choose to believe
In where we’re from

Man’s red flower
It’s in every living thing
Mind, use your power
Spirit, use your wings
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

Hold on to me
Don’t let me go
Cheetahs need to eat
Run, antelope
Your first name is King
Last name is Dom
Cause you still believe
In everyone

When a baby first breathes
When night sees sunrise
When the whale hunts in the sea
When man recognizes
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom
Freedom
Breathe in

We are from heat
The electric one
Does it shock you to see
He left us the sun?
Atoms in the air
Organisms in the sea
The son and, yes, man
Are made of the same things

Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

……

Williams performed the song on his international 2015 tour, including during his set at Glastonbury Festival 2015 on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday 27 June.

“Freedom” is a new piece of work from Williams, who is one of the most prolific producers in the business. He hasn’t announced anything in the way of a new album just yet, but the release of this new single is likely his way of hinting that something is coming. The fact that “Freedom” is likely the first sample of a new era for the singer just makes it that much more valuable to Apple. –Forbes

Writing for MusicSnake, Marissa Fitzgerald gave the song a very postive review, give it 4/5 stars and stating “‘Freedom’ is an awesome track with a feel-good vibe and a positive message. The lyrics are uplifting and promote living a happy life without restrictions or limitations.”
