By Jeremy D. Larson
We finally got the full tracklisting of the Divergent soundtrack and it’s of Twilight proportions.
The upcoming soundtrack to the sci-fi flick features Zedd, M83, Snow Patrol, Woodkid, Skrillex and Ellie Goulding, who lends her voice to three tracks including “Dead in the Water” off her 2012 album, Halcyon and the new song “Beating Heart.” You can listen to that track, which was written specifically for the film, exclusively on EW.com.
Goulding also provided the “musical voice” for the film’s star, Shailene Woodley. “I got to jam, like you would jam on a guitar, but just with my voice,” Goulding told EW of the process. “I really enjoyed it.”
Additionally, the soundtrack features a few interesting collaborations including pop star Pia Mia teaming up with Chance the Rapper, A$AP Rocky working with French DJ Gesaffelstein and Tame Impala getting a little help from Kendrick Lamar who takes lead vocals on a version of the Aussie band’s song ”Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,” which is now called “Backwards.”
A deluxe edition of the soundtrack with feature three additional tracks including one from BANKS and another one from Goulding off her album, Halcyon.
Divergent is set to hit big screens on March 21. The soundtrack will precede the film, rolling out March 11 via Interscope.
