Let’s get dystopian for a minute (or three minutes and 47 seconds to be exact) with Ellie Goulding. “Beating Heart” comes off the Divergent soundtrack and the music video, directed by Ben Newbury, sets the scene perfectly for our post-apocalyptic adventure. The video intercuts footage from the action/adventure thriller starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James with the beautiful pop sensation Ms. Goulding herself, walking through an abandoned forest, at one with nature. She’s tatted up with the signature tattoos of the film, as she sings the epic ballad until she is consumed by black in the stunning last shot of the video.
We hope the apocalypse doesn’t happen, but if it does, let’s just make sure this is on our end-of-the-world mixtape.
