Ellie Goulding reveals she’s a huge part of the ‘Divergent’ soundtrack and score

January 22, 2014

British singer Ellie Goulding has revealed exclusively to MTV that she’s not just a part of one song on the Divergent soundtrack, she’s actually contributing three….PLUS she is also lending her voice to the instrumental score.

“I wrote a song for ‘Divergent,’ called ‘Beating Heart,’ and it’s being used for the soundtrack,” she said, “And they’re also going to use ‘Don’t Say a Word’ and ‘Dead in the Water,’ and the rest of it is instrumental vocal stuff.”

“I was recording with an orchestra for ‘Divergent,’ and my voice is kind of woven into the instrumental bits of the soundtrack,” she explained. “So, like, I basically got to go into the studio, and just be put in front of the microphone for a few hours and sing whatever I wanted to sing. Not even words, noises and sounds, too. I listened to a lot of Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard, that kind of stuff.” How cool is that?!

Are you looking forward to hearing Ellie’s voice in the Divergent movie?
