All Is Found

Album: Frozen 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • The Disney animated film Frozen II opens with a flashback scene where Queen Iduna (Evan Rachel Wood) sings this song to her young daughters, Elsa and Anna. The lullaby describes a magical river that lies to the north of their Arendelle kingdom. It goes on to instruct that if Elsa and Anna should ever locate this water body, they will find it contains explanations of the kingdom's past.
  • "All Is Found" was written by the husband-and-wife team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who also penned the tunes for the original Frozen movie. This was the first song they wrote for Frozen 2. Anderson-Lopez told Billboard it was inspired by "Rockabye Baby" and "Norwegian lullabies that all feel like they're sung in a misty forest just as the sun is going down."
  • Kacey Musgraves recorded the song for part of the movie's end credits slate. The country star is accompanied on her version by an echoing acoustic guitar.
