Yes! There’s Now a Taylor Swift Connection to Insurgent!
Taylor Swift already staked her claim in the Hunger Games franchise, nabbing two spots on the first film’s soundtrack, The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond: the promotional single for the album, “Safe & Sound” (with The Civil Wars), and “Eyes Open,” the first single. While she doesn’t have an official claim in the Divergent franchise, three of her best friends do!
The first song from the upcoming movie’s soundtrack, “Holes in the Sky,” has just been released, and it’s been recorded by M83 and… Este, Danielle and Alana Haim (a.k.a. HAIM, duh)! According to the musical trio of sisters, “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. 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.”
Insurgent hits theaters on March 20, but you can get your first listen of “Holes in the Sky” above!
