It has been announced that Lorde will curate the soundtrack for the forthcoming third instalment of the Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. The New Zealand singer-songwriter is also due to provide the soundtrack’s lead single.
In a press release Lorde has said that masterminding the soundtrack of such a film was a challenge but she “jumped at the chance. The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”
This follows on from Lorde’s contribution of ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s score. The two preceding films’ soundtracks have also featured music from artists such as Arcade Fire, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Ellie Goulding so expect some more A-listers.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is released on November 21st. You can watch the official teaser trailer for the movie above.
