‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Soundtrack Artists Unmasked

image

While we will be the first to admit that we have read the Fifty Shades of Grey series (several times, we might add), we will also be the first to admit that the casting for the movie is not what we imagined nor are we that excited for it following all the publicity behind it.

One thing we are excited for is the soundtrack for the upcoming film.

Since the new version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” made its debut during the first trailer for the film, we’ve been wondering what the soundtrack would sound like considering music plays a role in the book series.

Yesterday afternoon, the full tracklist for the soundtrack was unveiled and like we had already known, Beyoncé, The Weeknd, and Ellie Goulding are some of the artists on the list, but between Sia, Frank Sinatra, and The Rolling Stones you will find an interesting addition: Danny Elfman.

Yes, the man who voiced Jack Skellington and has written countless scores for Tim Burton will be contributing two scores for the soundtrack: one in honor of our main characters Ana and Christian, and another titled, “Did That Hurt?”

Fitting.

Check out the full tracklist below as well as The Weeknd and Ellie Goulding’s previously released songs.

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY SOUNDTRACK TRACKLIST:

1. “I Put A Spell On You (Fifty Shades of Grey)” – Annie Lennox
2. “Undiscovered” – Laura Welsh
3. “Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)” – The Weeknd
4. “Meet Me In The Middle” – Jessie Ware
5. “Love Me Like You Do” – Ellie Goulding
6. “Haunted (Michael Diamond Remix)” – Beyoncé

10. “Crazy In Love (2014 Remix)” – Beyoncé

15. “Ana And Christian” – Danny Elfman
16. “Did That Hurt?” – Danny Elfman

Fifty Shades of Grey will be released in theaters on Feb. 13, so get your girlfriends together and go see it for Galentine’s Day, we guess.

Sia’s ‘Catching Fire’ Song Debuts

sia-rihanna-diamonds

Last week was a good week for news concerning the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. 

Everyday, it looked like the people behind the major film were giving fans news about the soundtrack as a way to hold them over until the sequel opens up in theaters.

First, there was news that The National were almost left off the soundtrack because their contribution had been too dark; they ended up being on the soundtrack at the end. Then Christina Aguilera announced via Twitter that she had been working on a new song that would only be seen (or heard) on the soundtrack.

Following that announcement, the full list of musicians and their songs had been released, revealing a mixed bag of artists making it on the album. On Friday, a Seattle radio station debuted a live version of the Lumineers’ contribution, “Gale Song” from a show that the band had performed at.

And just when you think that wasn’t enough to tide you over until November, today, Sia’s song for the soundtrack made its own debut on the internet. The song which is titled, “Elastic Heart” premiere on Zane Lowe’s radio show on BBC Radio 1. The song which not only features the Titanium singer, but also The Weeknd and Diplo is currently available online, or you can just simply listen to it here.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due out on November 22 with the soundtrack coming out that Tuesday, November 19.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Tracklist Revealed

We already know that Coldplay will be featured on the upcoming, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack with their song “Atlas” and last week, The National also revealed that their song, “Lean” was almost no featured because it was too dark. Last night, Christina Aguilera revealed through her personal Twitter that she will also be featured on the soundtrack with a new, original song she had worked on titled, “We Remain.”

With all the news coming out about the musicians that will be on the sequel’s soundtrack, it was only a matter of time before the full track list featuring the titled of the songs and the musicians behind them will hit the web and that indeed happened today.

The soundtrack will not only featured the artists that have already been listed above, but other such as The Lumineers with “Gale Song,” Patti Smith with “Capital Letter,” Ellie Goulding with “Mirror” and many more.

The album is scheduled to be released on November 19, just a few days before the film is set to hit theaters on November 22.

Recently, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had been in the news when it was announced that the movie would not be premiering first in the United States, rather it would be premiered across the ocean in Italy as part of the Rome Film Festival on November 14.
