Every book series that has been turned into a film franchise has had the good fortune of getting fantastic artists to contribute music to the soundtrack.
It was announced today that The Hunger Games–Mockingjay Part 1 has gotten one of the hottest artist of the last year to curate the soundtrack for the film; Lorde.
The New Zealand songstress announced that she would not only be working on the music for the third installation of the Jennifer Lawrence staring film, but she will also contribute an original song to the record which will also be the lead single.
“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde in a press release.
“The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”
The soundtracks for the first two installations of the franchise (The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) have garnered contributions from artists such as The National, Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, The Arcade Fire, Patti Smith, Ellie Goulding, Christina Aguilera, Maroon 5 and many more.
As if curating a record to one of the most anticipated films wasn’t enough pressure, the singer revealed earlier that she is currently working on a new album that will be different from her breakthrough record, Pure Heroine.
She revealed that the new sounds can be contributed to how she has grown as an artist and writer.
