M83 - "I Need You"

The people in charge of putting together the soundtrack to Divergent, the forthcoming sci-fi young-adult blockbuster adaptation, have kept things ostentatiously of-the-moment. Various songs on the Divergent soundtrack album pair up Kendrick Lamar with Tame Impala, or A$AP Rocky with Gesaffelstein. But the first song we’ve heard from the soundtrack is a pretty spectacular example of a well-known band doing what it does better than anyone else. M83′s “I Need You” is a gorgeous piece of work — swelling, cinematic, over-the-top synthetic stadium-prog that builds to a beyond-satisfying crescendo. I wish it was longer than three minutes, but we can’t have everything we want. Listen.
