Birds of Prey Soundtrack to Include a Halsey Song Co-Written by Bring Me the Horizon
Turns out that Halsey’s appearance on Bring Me the Horizon’s recent, ridiculously-titled EP, Music to listen to~dance to~blaze to~pray to~feed to~sleep to~talk to~grind to~trip to~breathe to~help to~hurt to~scroll to~roll to~love to~hate to~learn Too~plot to~play to~be to~feel to~breed to~sweat to~dream to~hide to~live to~die to~GO TO, won’t be the only collaboration between the pop singer and the metalcore crew: according to BMTH keyboardist Jordan Fish, he and vocalist Oli Sykes also co-wrote a new Halsey song, “Experiment on Me,” which will be included on the soundtrack for next month’s Birds of Prey, the latest DC Comics-based movie.
Birds of Prey will see noted Margot Robbie returning to the role of Batman anti-hero Harley Quinn, who was originally created to be the Joker’s moll before she became such a popular character that DC got her out of that abusive relationship and into her own spotlight (the subtitle for Birds of Prey is The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Even though Robbie is a noted metal fan, the Halsey/BMTH collaboration is the only metal-adjacent song on the soundtrack, which exclusively features female artists (grrrl power is clearly a big theme for this flick). I mean. I’m sure Robbie had little-to-no control over the soundtrack. But still. If you were hoping she managed to get some Halestorm on there, prepare to be disappointed.
Birds of Prey, the movie and the soundtrack, both come out February 7.
