Will the soundtrack be just as popular as the movie and book series? Interscope Records will partner with Summit Entertainment to release the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to the action adventure film Divergent on March 11th, as well as the Original Score on March 18th. The soundtrack features a brand new song by multi-platinum British singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding entitled “Beating Heart” as well as songs from Goulding’s sophomore album, Halcyon.
Goulding will also contribute vocals to the film’s score composed by Grammy®-nominated and multi-platinum electronic artist Junkie XL and executive produced by Grammy® and Oscar®-winning composer Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight, Inception). Pre-order on iTunes today: iTunes.com/DivergentSoundtrack.
“We started working with songs from Ellie Goulding’s album Halcyon and soon found that the texture of her music and the tone of her voice perfectly matched our film,” says Divergent director Neil Burger. “In many ways Ellie has become the inner voice of our heroine Tris.”
In addition to “Beating Heart,” the soundtrack album features music by Zedd (the track “Find You,” featuring Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant) and brand new songs from Snow Patrol, Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar, M83, A$AP Rocky featuring Gesaffelstein, Pretty Lights, Skrillex and Pia Mia featuring Chance The Rapper. Songs from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack are prominently featured in the film.
North American fans can pre-order both Standard and Deluxe editions of Divergent: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on iTunes today Tuesday, February 25th. Those who pre-order either the Standard or Deluxe Edition (which includes additional songs) will receive instant downloads of Goulding’s “Beating Heart” and Zedd’s “Find You.” (iTunes.com/DivergentSoundtrack)
