|“||I think that one of the challenges for a movie like this is that it's set in the future and so you sort of have to figure out, "OK, what might music in the future sound like?" The film is actually set not in a perfected future, but actually kind of in a future world that is deteriorating. And so we wanted to create a musical element that had reflected on current music sounds, but also felt kind of time-forward and had a certain futuristic element. Really our notion was to find music that was dangerous, tribal and had electronic elements without really being dance-y.||”|
–Music supervisor Randall Poster talking about the soundtrack album
Divergent: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the original soundtrack for the film Divergent. Zedd's single "Find You" appears on it as the first track. Ellie Goulding—who had previously collaborated with Zedd on "Fall Into the Sky"—and Skrillex—one of Zedd's long-time friends—both contributed to the soundtrack as well.
On December 19, 2013, Ellie Goulding's "Dead in the Water" from her 2012 album Halcyon was featured in Divergent's first official clip. This song was later included on the soundtrack.
On January 26, 2014, "Find You" was released as the soundtrack album's first single. The soundtrack was officially released on March 11, 2014. "Beating Heart" by Ellie Goulding was released on May 9, 2014, as its second single.
