Got a young adult dystopian sci-fi-ish movie on the way? Chances are, like “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games,” your soundtrack is loaded with hip, up-and-coming indie acts (the music of which probably not actually featured in the movie, but that’s besides the point when you’re talking about synergy and trying to move units).
The soundtrack details for “Divergent” have been released today on Amazon, and as promised over the weeks from the official soundtrack website, it features acts like Ellie Goulding (who has multiple cuts on the disc), A$AP Rocky, Zedd and Woodkid. But there’s more. Announced in the full 13 tracklist is French ambient rockers M83, superstar DJ/noisemaker Skrillex, anthemic indie rockers Tame Impala with rapper Kendrick Lamar, Snow Patrol, appearances by Chance The Rapper, Gesaffelstein and more. And for hardcore fans, Target has a 16-track version with three bonus cuts from Woodkid, BANKS and Ellie Goulding once again.
Starring Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and Theo James, “Divergent” is due in theaters on March 21st. The soundtrack is scheduled for release early on March 11th via Interscope Records. Tracklist below. How many guesses shall we make about which songs actually make the movie besides the closing credits (which is clearly that thirteenth Ellie Goulding track)?
