One of the most influential pop culture figures of the past 20 years — whether you like it or not — is back with a summer-sprinkled bop just in time for the long Fourth of July weekend. This past Friday (June 21), Paris Hilton returned to the world of pop music with vibrant and glossy new single “I’m Free,” and she’s brought Rina Sawayama along for the ride.

The glistening post-disco jam draws inspiration from Ultra Naté’s influential late-’90s house anthem “Free,” and it’ll be featured on INFINITE ICON, Hilton’s Sia-produced forthcoming new album that follows her 2006 self-titled debut.

Yeah, it’s been that long. But Hilton is still totally sliving it.

“A song can change your life, and that’s what ‘Free’ by Ultra Naté did for me,” Hilton says. “I heard it for the first time at a club in New York City shortly after being released from the Provo Canyon School where I experienced mental and physical abuse. For me, the song represents the journey of healing and finding your voice. It has served as an anthem of hope and a guiding light and I’m honored to have had the chance to create this new version. I’m also so grateful to have Rina Sawayama’s mesmerizing vocals and lyrics on the song. Together, Rina and I hope to inspire fans around the world to embrace their own strong voices and feel free to fully express themselves.”
