The first film based on Veronica Roth’s bestselling book series Divergent arrives in theaters on March 21, 2014 starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, and directed by Neil Burger. Arriving a few days earlier is the Divergent: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Interscope Records and Summit Entertainment. The soundtrack will hit stores on March 11th followed on March 18th by the original score recording.
British singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding is featured extensively on the soundtrack with the new song “Beating Heart” as well as tracks off of her Halcyon album. Goulding’s also contributing to vocals to the film’s score composed by electronic artist Junkie XL and executive produced by Hans Zimmer.
“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.”
The soundtrack also includes tracks from Zedd, Snow Patrol, Tame Impala, Skrillex, M83, and Kendrick Lamar.
