With just a few weeks left until the Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 1 soundtrack is set to be released, curator and contributor Lorde has released the official music video for her lead single from the record, “Yellow Flicker Beat.”

The video features the singer in several different locations including a motel room, a house, a party, next to a swimming pool and others while she sings and dances along to the song.

Check the video out below.

The other day, Lorde unveiled the identity of the missing track from the soundtrack’s list which was simply titled “Track 5” at the time of the track list unveiling. The track turned out to be a collaboration between Ariana Grande and Diplo’s Major Lazer and it was not unveiled because the song wasn’t completely finished at the time.

As if that wasn’t enough, CHVRCHES also revealed their contribution to the soundtrack, “Dead Air” earlier this week. For a little while there, it was rumored that the new song they had performed live named “Richard Pryor” was actually “Dead Air” being performed under an alias.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 1 Soundtrack will be released on Nov. 17 while the film starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Woody Harrelson hits theaters on Nov. 21.
