Beyonce Knowles has another new song coming. Aside from taking part in "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack album executive produced by her husband Jay-Z, she has also recorded an original tune called "Rise Up" for an upcoming animation flick "Epic".

The theme song was penned by Queen Bey along with Sia ("Diamonds"). Coming from production hands of Hit-Boy ("Bow Down") and Chase N. Cashe ("Drop the World"), it's expected to be released later this month ahead of the movie's nationwide release on May 24.

In addition to contributing to the soundtrack, the mother of one voices the Mother Nature-like queen of the forest, Queen Tara, in the 3D movie. She is joined by Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Christoph Waltz, Pitbull and Steven Tyler among others.

It's quite a busy year for Beyonce. She's currently putting together her next studio installment and traveling the world for a world tour.
