Oh Land has consistently impressed us over and over with her ethereal, electro-pop tunes ever since she fell on our radar back in January as our Popping Up artist. Nine months later, it’s safe to say the Danish singer has fully popped. Oh Land (born Nanna Øland Fabricius) contributed a new song called “Twist” to the Abduction – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, the companion album to the upcoming Taylor Lautner-starring action thriller. Listen to the exclusive premiere of the snappy, almost Cabaret-sounding track below.

Abduction – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out September 20, and also features songs by Train, Lenny Kravitz, Alexis Jordan and Cobra Starship. Abduction is in theaters everywhere September 23.
