Listen To HAIM And M83 Perform The First Song From ‘Insurgent’
2 March 2015
In only a few weeks (March 20), we’ll get to see the continuing adventures of Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) back on the big-screen in “The Divergent Series: Insurgent.” And what fans are looking forward to almost as much seeing Tris match wits — and fear landscapes — with the villainous Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet) is the soundtrack to the sequel.
Though we’ve known for a while that the score for the movie will be composed by Joseph Trapanese, there’s been a huge amount of speculation about what will appear on the “Insurgent” soundtrack, especially considering the blockbuster line-up on the “Divergent” disc.
Good news, then: At least one artist will be returning, M83, and they’re bringing HAIM with them, for a brand-new track titled “Holes In The Sky.”
And holy strings, this song is a gorgeous orchestral slow-burn that showcases both the HAIM sisters’ rich vocals and M83′s incomparable composition skills. Listen to it now:
“We’ve been fans of Anthony Gonzalez and M83 for a long long time so when he reached out to have us sing on the song we were ecstatic,” HAIM told MTV News in a statement. “We had the best time in the studio with him, it all happened so fast and was so easy and natural. We are so excited to be a part of this movie.”
“See What I’ve Become,” by Zack Hemsey was featured in the official trailer, but this is the first real taste that the new line-up of artists will be even more Dauntless than the first collection. By which we mean exciting, challenging and different, not covered in tattoos. But maybe that too.
