Blake Shelton is lending his voice to the Angry Birds movie in the role of a country pig. However, that is not where Shelton’s contributions to the film end.
Included on the movie soundtrack is “Friends,” a song performed by Shelton for the Angry Birds flick. Today, following the preview of the tune itself, Shelton released a music video, featuring him singing in the studio, along side some of his winged friends.
“Friends” is an uplifting tune, saturated with banjo and fiddle, that shares the story of traveling alone until finding that perfect person with whom to share your troubles. The lyrics explain:
There’s a moment in this journey that I gave up. My boots just couldn’t walk another mile.
But then, a friend came along to ease the woes.
Kickin’ up dust wherever we go. I can see that you and me are gonna be friends.
The Angry Birds movie will hit theaters in May 2016. Watch the music video below to start your Friday off on a fun and upbeat note!
