"Welcome Horizons" is a K.K. Slider song in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is a rendition of the title theme for New Horizons, and was the only original K.K. Slider song to be added in that game until the release of the 2.0 update on November 4, 2021.

The track features a flugelhorn, ukulele, acoustic guitar, an accordion, and tropical percussion, giving off a laid-back island vibe.

Album cover[edit]

The album cover for "Welcome Horizons" depicts a portrait of K.K. Slider sitting on the beach, singing and playing his guitar. He is portrayed in profile at a slight angle. Airplane contrails can be seen in the sky above him. The portrait is framed to the left of the cover, leaving empty space on the right side. An ink stamp that reads "Welcome Horizons" is in the top right corner of the cover, partially overlapping the portrait.


In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, "Welcome Horizons" can first be heard in-game playing from a tape deck outside of Resident Services during the bonfire party to celebrate the first night living on the island. Tom Nook will give the resident representative an aircheck after K.K. visits the island and performs for the first time. Other players on the island will receive it directly from K.K. Slider himself, who will always play the song when one attends his show for the first time. It is not played in any villagers' houses.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise, "Welcome Horizons" is played in the houses of Bree, Cranston, and Poppy.

In Pocket Camp[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, "Welcome Horizons" plays on the portable radio furniture item from the Island Excursion Invite Set.

In other media[edit]

Before the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, "Welcome Horizons" was first performed live by K.K. Slider during the Splatoon concerts at the Nintendo Live 2019 event in Kyoto.[1]
