[LISTEN] Demi Lovato’s Version of “Let It Go” from Frozen + Lyrics

  • Share on Tumblr

Remember back in July when Frozen director Jennifer Lee tweeted that a pop “powerstorm” was recording a song for the new Disney movie?

Well, it seems like we now know who that vocal powerhouse is: none other than Disney diva Demi Lovato!

Demi Lovato will be lending her vocal stylings to the pop version of Elsa’s anthem “Let It Go” from Frozen which will play over the end credits.

In a creative marketing strategy, Disney asked fans to Tweet using the hashtag #DemiFrozen in order to unlock the song over on frozensocialsnowstorm.com. Clearly this campaign was a huge success, as #DemiFrozen ended up as the #1 worldwide trending hashtag for the day!

Personally, I think Demi is a great choice for the end credits song. Her voice is powerful, emotive and always pitch perfect. She’s current and relevant in today’s pop music landscape. Plus, it helps that we’re used to seeing her associated with the Disney brand (she’s starred on the Disney Channel originals Sonny With A Chance, Camp Rock and has also performed a song for the second Tinker Bell movie).

Demi’s version itself is really good. She interprets it more as a love song than Idina Menzel does in the film, where her character Elsa flees the kingdom out of fear. Demi is able to infuse the song with passion and strength, and makes it her own. It’s worth noting that Demi’s version is quite different from the movie version. It has a different structure and vastly different lyrics (which you can read below). Both the movie and the pop versions were written by husband and wife, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Check out Demi’s version of “Let It Go” in its entirety below:

 

Watch out for Demi’s version of “Let It Go” from Frozen which will be featured on the Deluxe Edition 2-Disc Soundtrack of the movie which releases November 26, just one day before Frozen is unleashed in theatres.

“Let It Go”Lyrics –  Demi Lovato Versiondisney-frozen-soundtrack-music

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go,
Turn my back and slam the door

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I’m the queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in
Heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go,
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all
Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe
I know left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go,
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

Standing frozen in the life I’ve chosen
You won’t find me, the past is so behind me
Buried in the snow

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go,
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

    I liked Idina’s performance much better, and I’m sure her film version will be even better, but this one’s okay. Btw did you see this NEW Frozen TV spot released a few hours ago which features Demi’s version of “Let It Go.” There are also some new scenes:

      This trailer is so fantastic!

    I like that Disney is doing what they used to do back in the 90s- have a popstar sing a pop version of the “big” song in the movie! A music video ought to follow!

    • Blake Taylor

      Yes, me too! I appreciated the efforts of the credit songs for Princess and the Frog and Tangled, but I really wanted to hear a radio version of “I See the Light” or “Almost There” or something. Aaaah I just can’t wait for this movie.

        Actually I believe there was a pop cover of I See The Light, it just didn’t gain too much fame. (tbh I’m happy because it makes me cringe .___.)

      • Alex

        I kind of wish they would do something like with the Tangled credits. I LOVED the song and artwork at the end. I was never a big fan of the pop versions… They clog up my disney pandora station too much!

    Wow! Almost as good as Chelsea and Zoe-Faye! ;)

  • Monica Rae Jennings

    I can’t stop listening to it. I’ve listen to this song 3 times already. Demi is the perfect choice for this song, Demi’s also one of my favorite singers. Argh Frozen just come out now.

    Beautiful song, great vocalist choice. Buying this on iTunes as we speak.

  • Ember Lily

    Ever since I’ve heard this I have the most perfect mental picture of how let it go will be in the movie

    Powerstorm? Didn’t know such a word existed.

    Other than that, cool news…not amazing, but cool!

  • Maria

    I love this version, can’t wait to hear it during the end credits. :D

  • Adam Ball

    LOVE IT. Listening to this I can just hear Idina belting face as Elsa runs away from the kingdom, throwing her glows on the ground, turning everything she runs passed into ice, and finally as she “lets it go” she throws her hands in the air and a blizzard surrounds her. So STOKED for this film. Have been following it for YEARS and we are so close :)

    I love it!
