Lykke Li released her beautiful but wounded I Never Learn just last week, and it’s like we’ve only just wrung the tears out of our sleeves and she’s gone and done it again. Today Rookie premiered “No One Ever Loved,” her stripped-down and paino-driven contribution to the soundtrack for the Shailane Woodly-starring, buzzy YA adaptation du jour, The Fault In Our Stars. “It feels like the universe made this happen, and I am so happy about it,” she says of the song’s placement. “It makes perfect sense, it feels like the lyrics are word by word how [the main character] Hazel would feel: You will never get over your first love, and no one will ever understand the universe where the two of you existed, or the way his eyes consist of starry skies and paradises.” The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack also features Charli XCX, M83, and The Radio Dept., and it is out May 19 on Atlantic. The movie hits theaters on June 6. The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack also features Charli XCX, M83, and The Radio Dept., and it is out May 19 on Atlantic. The movie hits theaters on June 6.
