Lorde will curate the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.
"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," Lorde said in a statement. "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." The 17-year old singer was an obvious choice to head up the Mockingjay soundtrack, having contributed a harrowing cover of Tears for Fears’ "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" to the soundtrack for the previous Hunger Games film, Catching Fire.
Previous soundtracks of the first two Hunger Games films feature the talents from Arcade Fire, The National, The Decemberists, Patti Smith, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and many more others.
