The song features on the 'Insurgent' film soundtrack
French artist Woodkid has teamed up with Lykke Li for a new track.
The song – titled ‘Never Let You Down’ – will feature on the soundtrack for upcoming film Insurgent, the sequel to 2014’s Divergent. Listen below.
Insurgent is the second film in the franchise based on Veronica Roth’s trilogy of young adult novels. It is set to open in cinemas on March 20. The final two films in the series, Allegiant – Part 1 and Allegiant – Part 2, will then follow in March 2016 and March 2017.
Meanwhile, Lykke Li was recently forced to cancel a string of tour dates because of ill health.
The Swedish singer, who released her ‘I Never Learn’ last year, scrapped scheduled gigs in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore which she was due to play as part of this year’s Laneway Festival. She has been replaced by rapper Tkay Maizda for each of the festival’s five Australian dates.
“I’m incredibly sorry to announce that I’m no longer able to play Australia, New Zealand and Singapore for Laneway Festival,” said Li. “It’s been a long time coming, but unfortunately tour life has caught up with me and it’s been recommended that I take a break. I’m devastated but I know I will return.”
Li released her debut album ‘Youth Novels’ in 2008, with follow-up ‘Wounded Rhymes’ released in 2011 and her third LP, ‘I Never Learn’, arriving last year. Speaking previously to NME about the album, Li said it was the third part in a trilogy of her albums, claiming that the album covers the “intense period” of being a woman in her twenties. “I see my albums as a trilogy, with [2007 debut] ‘Youth Novels’ as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter,” she said.
