The Siren Call from Frozen II

One of my first songs that became popular was my cover of The Siren Call (Into The Unknown) from Frozen II.

The tune really stuck out to me when I saw it at the movies with my kid, and I thought I could make it sound good on flute, but I had never done any cover songs before and was totally stumped at the licensing process to make it legit.

I popped it up on YouTube and promptly forgot about it. Two weeks later I happened to check my stats, and YouTube’s algorithm suddenly picked it up, pulling in 10k views over 3 days. It’s still doing ok on YouTube, and Spotify doesn’t hate it, so I’m pretty happy about that.
