Billed as his first new entirely solo work in 20 years, New Horizons is Brian's tribute to the NASA mission of the same name. The track was premired on New Years Day 2019 at the NASA Applied Physics Laboratory in Columbia, Maryland to celebrate mankind's encounter with Ultima Thule, an object on the edges of the solar system. New Horizons features samples of messages from Stephen Hawking, vocals by Brian and of course, his signature guitar sound.

The audio mix of the video version of New Horions differs from the standard digital download single. The video adds the countdown of the probe launch at the beginning and does not feature the outro speech by Stephen Hawking.
