Hozier is back with his new song 'Better Love', taken from the original motion picture The Legend of Tarzan.

Created especially for the movie by the singer/songwriter, the song is part of the official soundtrack for the flick, available now on iTunes, with the single also available for streaming on Spotify.

Chatting about 'Better Love', Hozier said: "I was excited about the opportunity and the challenge of writing for this film project. After viewing an early edit, I was struck by the theme of endurance, and endurance of love through such a hostile environment. I wanted the song to be an intimate reassurance as spoken from one lover to another - one that might be issued in hardship or doubt."

Following the screening, Hozier started work on a piano before taking the piece to Abbey Road studios in London to add orchestra.

Also featured on the soundtrack is the movie's compelling score, composed by Rupert Gregson-Williams.

Gregson-Williams commented: "It was vital that we felt the emotional pull of Africa for Tarzan.

"Tarzan has a theme, both brave and emotional, and I also composed a love theme for Tarzan and Jane. It connects them across the jungle."

Opening on July 1, The Legend of Tarzan's synopsis reads: "It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie), at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the King of Belgium’s envoy, Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash."
