The Giver, an upcoming film based on the 1993 book starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgård, Odeya Rush, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift, is already shaping up to be an epic summer release. Now, it will have a fittingly all-star soundtrack.

The Giver: Music Collection, coming just a week before the release of the film, will feature 10 songs from various artists — including an original song from OneRepublic, titled “Ordinary Human.”

OneRepublic are joined on the soundtrack’s tracklist by Capital Cities, Jake Bugg, Aloe Blacc, Tori Kelly, Bruno Major, Rixton, Sheppard and NeedToBreathe. The band will also contribute “I Lived,” from 2013 album Native.

For OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, writing a track for the film was a personal project.

The Giver is a favorite book of ours and we’re all incredibly thrilled to see it brought to the big screen,” he said in a statement. “It’s a huge honor to contribute our music to a movie that’s not only an amazing story, but also has a cast of actors that we admire so much, like Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. We hope our fans are just as excited about it as we are.”

The Giver doesn’t hit theaters until Aug. 15 but you can pre-order the soundtrack today, which comes with an instant download of “Ordinary Human.”

The soundtrack officially drops Aug. 5.
