As new details of Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s new video for their steamy track I Don’t Want To Live Forever emerge (Malik, suited up, destroys a hotel room. Swift, wearing lingerie sets the curtains alight), they are the only big-name artists on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.

The next most anticipated track is written by Sia titled Helium. Halsey, Tove Lo and John Legend also feature on separate tracks, see the full track listing below.

Released in Australian cinemas on February 9, here’s hoping the film doesn’t fall short of its tantalising promise like the first instalment did. Fifty Shades of Grey grossed AUS$755 million at the worldwide box office in 2015 but didn’t impress critiques who instead championed the soundtrack in lieu of the script.

Fifty Shades Darker see chemistry-less Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return as the naïve and newly-single Anastasia Steele and young billionaire Christian Grey. The film sees the pair rekindle their past flame, in similar dominant-versus-submissive-style sex sequences nonetheless, as Grey suggests a new arrangement.
