Listen to Woodkid and Lykke Li’s ‘Insurgent’ Collaboration, ‘Never Let You Down’
French singer-songwriter Woodkid and Swedish chanteuse Lykke Li have joined forces on “Never Let You Down,” a new song that will appear on the soundtrack for Insurgent, the sequel to 2014’s Divergent, both of which are based on the young-adult book series of the same name. Check out the track in the video above.
Woodkid – whose real name is Yoann Lemoine – serves up a dark, brooding baritone on the cut, not dissimilar to that of Irish singer Hozier. Lykke Li’s more ethereal contribution makes a nice fit, something that Woodkid acknowledged in an Instagram post last month:
The Insurgent soundtrack will land in stores on March 17 via Interscope, while the movie premieres in theaters on March 20. Woodkid and Lykke Li join M83, Haim, Royal Blood, Imagine Dragons and others who contributed to the forthcoming soundtrack. Check out the complete tracklist below.
Lemoine dropped his full-length debut, The Golden Age, under his Woodkid moniker back in 2013. Last year, Lykke Li released her third LP, I Never Learn.
