Known for her dark, catchy melodies, Lorde is undoubtedly a fine choice to curate the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack. The pop star was featured on the soundtrack for Catching Fire, along with Ellie Goulding, Imagine Dragons and Santigold. Historically, the songs tend towards the epic, and choosing them will be no small feat.
“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde said in a press release. “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.”
will also contribute the lead single for the Mockingjay soundtrack, and judging by Lionsgate’s marketing, we shouldn’t have much of a wait. The soundtrack comes out this fall via Republic Records.
