Kick your weekend off right with a bit of reckless abandon. This is your invitation to run away with the bass. 

Australia's Will Sparks is back with another boomin' anthem. "Young and Free" tempts you to let go of everything that ties you down, to put your hands in the air and succumb to the beat like it's the only thing that matters. 

“I wrote this song at a very precarious time in my life,” singer Priyanka Chopra says in an emailed statement. “These lyrics were born from a need for freedom, whatever that freedom may mean to each one of us. Being young and free is a state of mind that we all need to find in this crazy world to survive. What I love most about this track is the spontaneity from which it was born. While I was writing, Will was mixing the track into a roar of emotions and rebelliousness. It all came together in a true creative way. Will has taken the lyrics and given them life. This song reminded me of how much I love making music.

Musically, it's a head-rush bass canon with a jumpstyle beat that acts as the springboard for all your wild behavior.

“I wanted 'Young and Free' to feel like a track ahead of its time,” Sparks says in an emailed statement. “Collaborating with Priyanka has taken it to a whole new level. Her message and incredible voice combined with my production style has created something unique."

"Young and Free" is the push you need to get your weekend started in super drive. It's out on Ultra today. Listen to it below.
