Blake Shelton is a pig – and an angry one at that.

But it's not what you think. On May 20, fans of the country star can finally hear the "Came Here to Forget" singer voice Earl, a pig with a country twang, in the highly-anticipated Angry Birds Movie.

PEOPLE has as exclusive first look at the brand new song for the movie, titled "Friends," along with an adorably fun music video featuring several of the characters from the movie.



"I can write things about myself and my life," The Voice coach previously told Entertainment Weekly about writing the song. "But I don't have a whole lot of experience being shot out of a slingshot at pigs."
