'Sight Of The Sun': Fun. Releases New Song Featured On The 'Girls' Soundtrack

In anticipation of Tuesday's release of the "Girls" soundtrack, fun. has debuted a single, "Sight of the Sun," off the album.

The sound is distinctly fun. with Nate Ruess singing, "For once there is nothing up my sleeve / just some scars from a life that used to trouble me. I used to run at first sight of the sun / now I lay here waiting for you to wake up, I lay here waiting for you to wake up."

Rolling Stone reports that "Sight of the Sun" was recorded for use on fun.'s sophomore album, "Some Nights," but didn't make the cut as the song used a then-uncleared sample. "We got really dejected and put it away until Lena called," Ruess said.

"Some Nights" has been a major success for fun., serving as the band's mainstream breakout. Currently charting at No. 29 on Billboard's Top 200 almost a year after its debut, "Some Nights" peaked at No. 3.
