The latest artist to join the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack is singer Ellie Goulding, who contributed a new song titled “Love Me Like You Do.”
The 4-minute track is an upbeat pop song in which Ellie professes her love for a person. “You’re the light, you’re the night, you’re the color of my blood. You’re the cure, you’re the pain, you’re the only thing I want to touch.”
While any love song could easily host lyrics like these, the words in this one are obviously very reflective of the obsessive relationship between Christian and Ana in E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.
We usually love Goulding, but “Love Me Like You Do” isn’t her best pop song. The chorus is uninspired and lacks the creativity heard on other Goulding songs like “Burn” and “Anything Could Happen” which helped put her on the map.
Listen to the song (which comes complete with Kristen Stewart-esque lip-biting album art) below:
The track list for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack has yet to be unveiled, but the film released a new tune by The Weeknd in late December. The trailers for the film have also featured Beyoncé songs, including a slowed down, never-before-released version of “Crazy in Love.”
Whether these songs are remarkable or not, the fact of the matter is that the film is lining up an impressive roster of artists.
Goulding is no stranger to book-to-film adaptation soundtracks. She was the “voice” of Tris for Divergent and contributed a new song to the film titled “Beating Heart.”
Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters on February 13, 2015.
