New Song Releases From ‘Mortal Instruments’ Soundtrack (LISTEN)August 22, 2013
The highly-anticipated The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film is finally out and we already know that the film is going to sound awesome — because if the soundtrack is any indicator of how the movie will be, we don’t think we’ll have any complaints.
With the soundtrack featuring music among the likes Jessie J and Owl City, fans already caught a sneak peek of Demi Lovato‘s track “Heart by Heart,” and now, they can listen to the song in full.
Listen now to the Ariana Grande and The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes’ duet “Almost Is Never Enough“, featured on both the soundtrack of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Ariana’s debut album Yours Truly. If you watched their live performance of the ballad on tour last week, you will notice that a couple of verses are missing. Why? Because The Mortal Instruments’ soundtrack version is the ‘radio edit’, whereas the version found on “Yours Truly” – which is over 5 minutes long – is the ‘complete’ one.
“Almost Is Never Enough” is a tender ballad whose lyrics speak of finding love but it slipping away from your hands. Ariana and Nathan take turns for the verses, with Ari singing alone the first chorus, and the twosome joining their voices for the last section.
