Lykke Li and Woodkid's 'Never Let You Down' Haunts Beautifully
  • TUESDAY, MARCH 10, 2015

Swedish songstress Lykke Li is known for her sultry vocals and her entrancing blend of indie pop and electronica. Yoann Lemoine a.k.a. Woodkid is a Grammy nominated French director and singer/songwriter. The two recently joined forces to create the solemnly beautiful "Never Let You Down" for the forthcoming Insurgent Soundtrack.

Set atop a plodding, deep drum pattern, cavernous grand piano ripples outward as the pair take solo verses and then join in striking harmony. Ominous howling and strange electronic effects pepper the track and add to the powerful, dark ambience. A string section whines in and out creating intense drama and imbuing the repetitive chorus with a religious reeling of sorts.

"Never Let You Down" will fit perfectly with the rest of the soundtrack into Insurgent's dystopian universe. The full collection is available March 17th on Interscope Records and the film releases on March 20th. Take a listen, and check out Baeble's session with Lykke Li below.
