Listen: ASAP Rocky’s new song “In Distress”, featuring Gesaffelstein

on February 28, 2014, 11:38am

New songs off the star-studded Divergent soundtrack continue to roll out. Previously, M83 triumphed over evil on the soaring and sax-filled “I Need You”, and yesterday’s “Fight For You” saw Chance the Rapper, Clams Casino, and Pia holding onto young love. Now, ASAP Rocky and French producer Gesaffelstein wrangle up a harrowing banger with “In Distress”.

While Rocky drops assured lines about dividing and conquering (“Pay respect, now I’m coming to collect”), it’s Gesaffelstein’s backdrop of ghostly vocal samples and apocalyptic dread that sets the real tone of the track. Much like his work on Kanye West’s Yeezus, it’s the subtle creepiness of “In Distress” that’s truly unnerving. Listen in below (via Complex).

Due out March 11th, the soundtrack also boasts contributions from Kendrick Lamar and Tame Impala, Skrillex, Ellie Goulding, and Banks, among others. The film hits theaters on March 21st.
