Movie-lovers are set to have a wonderful year in 2014 as a stream of exciting and highly-anticipated movies are expected to release this year. Divergent is just one of those movies and along with every good movie, is a great soundtrack! British songstress Ellie Goulding will be contributing to the movie’s soundtrack with one new track, a previous song of hers and a remix of one of her previous tracks. She will also lend a track to the deluxe version of the soundtrack. However, the audio for the brand new song, ‘Beating Heart’, has been released!

Speaking about working on the movie’s tracklist, Ellie said, “I got to jam, like you would jam on a guitar, but just with my voice. I really enjoyed it.”

Director Neil Burger also spoke about the track and it’s importance to the movie itself. He said, “In the last scene of the movie, Tris has just experienced multiple tragedies, even as she triumphs (for the moment) over her enemies”.

“Ellie wrote ‘Beating Heart’ and we knew it’d be perfect for the end of the movie. Her lyrics almost merge with Tris’ voice-over and her music lets the movie soar above the tragedy. The sadness is still there but so is the transcendence. It’s a fantastic song.”

Divergent will be released on March 21, meanwhile, you can have a listen to ‘Beating Heart’ below and take a peak at the entire soundtrack for the movie!
