The signature track produced by Uncanny's music producer Justin Shave is a bold tune that celebrates the game of Rugby League, and is available now through all digital platforms. The track was released ahead of this week's Indigenous Round.

Says Guy Sawrey-Cookson, group creative director, Fox Sports: "Fox League is a brand-new channel that's young, fresh, and inclusive to all NRL fans. In developing the signature theme tune, we were looking to collaborate with an artist that understood what we were trying to create; a track that reflected the values of the channel, and championed every aspect of the game.

"Briggs was the perfect choice. After a day in the recording studio at Uncanny Valley, he and his team emerged with a track that perfectly encapsulated the attitude of the new channel."

Says Briggs: "I created this track as the theme for the Fox League channel - the song reflects the journey of the Indigenous players - who give so much excitement and leadership to the sport and community week in and week out, not just the specific Indigenous round."

Briggs wrote the lyrics to the new title track and collaborated with vocalist Caiti Baker to record the song. "Here" will also be available in a new music video, directed and produced by the Fox Sports creative team. The cover artwork for the single was designed by Indigenous artist Reko Rennie.

The track is available now through all digital platforms and Briggs will also perform the song live at the Suncorp double-header as part of the NRL Indigenous Round on Saturday 13 May.
