Like Paramore is to the Twilight franchise, Ellie Goulding is quickly becoming the head girl behind the Divergent soundtrack. With four tracks on the box office’s number one film’s album, the British darling released the music video for the lead single, “Beating Heart.”
The video begins with Goulding sitting in a dark room, dressed in all dark holding a glass full with a mysterious blue liquid. Once she drinks the liquid from the cup, she is transported into this foggy forest where she begins to be persuaded by a dark-haired man.
The video continues to intertwine footage from both the film and Goulding’s dream world. You would also notice that very much like Tris, Goulding has the bird tattoos on her collar area..
The highly anticipated film, Divergent is scheduled to hit theaters in two weeks, but those waiting eager for the film’s debut might have something to help take the edge off.
Yesterday, an advance stream of the film’s full soundtrack was made available exclusively to Pitchfork. The soundtrack which features several tracks from British darling, Ellie Goulding as well as the likes of M83, Skrillex, Snow Patrol (which we posted last week) and many others.
