The song was written for new movie ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ and will feature on the film’s accompanying soundtrack. It sees Anthony Gonzalez teaming up with the LA trio. Listen below.
“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,” Haim told MTV of the collaboration.
“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.”
‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ hits cinemas on March 20.
Meanwhile, Este Haim recently started a new band with Scarlett Johansson. However, the group have been hit with legal trouble.
Going by the name of The Singles, the group also consists of Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris and Julia Haltigan. A press release described their sound as “super-pop”. But now, a LA band of the same name have sent a cease-and-desist order to the group.
“I woke up one morning and learned from the news that our band name was literally just taken by someone else as their own,” frontman Vincent Frederick said. “It’s hard to believe that any musician would do something like that to another band. The Singles has been my life for the past 16 years. We have worked so incredibly hard to make it a success.”
The singer added: “Our band, The Singles, has an account on nearly all social media sites and our music is available in record shops, on iTunes, SoundCloud, and other websites. Just a simple search on Google would have revealed that ‘The Singles’ was already a band name being used by another pop/rock band – our band.”
Johansson and co released their first track ‘Candy’ via Federal Prism, the label of TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek. It isn’t Scarlett Johansson’s first foray into music: in 2008, she released Tom Waits tribute album ‘Anywhere I Lay My Head’, following it with Pete Yorn collaboration ‘Break Up’ in 2009.
Meanwhile, Haim have said that their new album is “shaping up”. Speaking at the Grammys earlier this month, the group discussed their forthcoming record as well as the inspirations behind it. “We try to write every day, it’s shaping up,” Danielle Haim said, while Este Haim added: “We gotta flex that songwriting muscle as much as possible, we’re keeping it creative. This [The Grammys] might inspire a song, who knows?”
