Published Feb 20, 2014Dystopian sci-fi book series Divergent is making its way to the big screen this spring, and the first eponymous instalment will pair the flick with a soundtrack full of new tunes from the likes of A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper, Clams Casino and UK pop figure Ellie Goulding. Though not all of the info has arrived, the soundtrack drops March 11, ahead of the film hitting theatres March 21.
Rocky revealed his part in the production last night (February 19) over Twitter, noting that there will be "new music comin soon" in the form of a collaboration between him and French techno artist Gesaffelstein. The track has not yet been detailed, but the DJ, who dabbled in the hip-hop world recently as one of many contributors to Kanye West's Yeezus LP, likewise confirmed the collabo with Lord Flacko on his Facebook page.
Also, Rocky's producer pal Clams Casino has apparently served up a beat on a new track featuring Chicago rhymer Chance the Rapper and pop singer Pia Mia.
A few weeks back, Zedd confirmed a contribution to the soundtrack, which is executive produced by Hans Zimmer, and so did Ellie Goulding, who will provide a new song called "Beating Heart." Additionally, her "wee voice" will be heard throughout the film on both the instrumental score, which was prepped by Junkie XL, and as the singing voice of actor Shailene Woodley's character, Trist.
