If you found yourself boldly raising a triumphant fist all spring and summer to the strains of Rachel Platten‘s inspiring breakout hit “Fight Song,” you’re in luck — the blonde-haired singer-songwriter’s follow-up cut is an equally stirring slice of mid-tempo pop called “Stand By You.”

The track, released today on iTunes, is the second single off Platten’s yet-to-be announced debut album for Columbia. (A press release states that details for the LP, due out sometime before the year ends, will be revealed in the coming weeks.)

“Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you / Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you,” Rachel declares on “Stand By You,” over instrumentation reminiscent of both Sara Bareilles‘ and Katy Perry‘s 2013 hits “Brave” and “Roar,” respectively.
