Iggy Azalea performs on ABC's 'Good Morning America' at Rumsey Playfield, Central Park on June 10, 2016 in New York City. 

Iggy Azalea is back with a new track, "Savior," with an assist from Migos rapper Quavo.   

"Savior," produced by Manhun Glow and Cirkut, opens with an interpolation of Lisa Stansfield's 1989 song "All Around the World" (which was also heard in Puff Daddy, Notorious B.I.G. and Mase's "Been Around the World" in 1997). "Been around the world and I, I, I / I can't find my baby," Azalea sings.   

"I wrote it at a really heavy period in my life where I'd had a lot of changes that had happened overnight," she told iHeartRadio of the song, which is set to appear on her forthcoming Surviving the Summer album. "I'd had a big breakup, and my career wasn't going well, and I sort of found myself in this space where everything that I was used to, just my day to day routine, had abruptly stopped. And I just didn't know how to get my life back together, or what my life looked like with all of these changes, and how to get a routine going again, and just how to get my happiness back and feeling normal. So that was the space that I was in when I wrote this song."   

She added: "It's a hard one to put out there, I think, because sometimes it takes me back to that place, which was so heavy. But it also makes me really happy when I hear it because I figured it out for myself."   

Check out the "Savior" lyric video below. Azalea told fans on Twitter that the song will be featured in a Super Bowl commercial Sunday (Feb. 4), and that an official music video is coming.
