Post-apocalyptic sci fi flick Divergent hits theaters on March 21, and details emerged today about the film’s soundtrack (out March 11). A press release for the Summit Entertainment production notes that, in addition to tracks from Ellie Goulding‘s latest album Halcyon, the BRIT Award-nominated singer will contribute a new song titled “Beating Heart” to the movie. Goulding’s voice will also be heard in some form or other in the Divergent score, which is being composed by Junkie XL and executive-produced by Hans Zimmer.

Grammy nominee Zedd will also have a new song, called “Find You,” on the soundtrack. The EDM producer enlisted past collaborators Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant for vocal duties.

“We started working on the film with songs from Ellie Goulding’s album Halcyonand soon found that the texture of her music and the tone of her voice matched perfectly with our film,” said Divergent director Neil Burger in the press release. “In many ways Ellie has become the inner voice of our heroine Tris.”
