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.

Katniss Returns Home in New ‘Mockingjay’ Preview

There’s no place like home for Katniss Everdeen and after having to be in both The Hunger Games and the Quarter Quell, it’s only logical that she wants to go home, but President Snow has made that impossible.

Like we witnessed, or at least were told at the end of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Gale Hawthorne, “there is no District 12.”

In the new preview for the upcoming installation of the hit book and film franchise, we are shown what exactly it means to become the Mockingjay when Katniss is taken back home to see the ruins that were once District 12.

If that wasn’t enough of a declaration of war by Snow, then we’re not sure what is, especially with the presence of that vase of dead, white roses with only one rose bud surviving. What’s Snow trying to say with that, huh?

Check out the new preview below which features Lorde’s newest track, “Yellow Flicker Beat” exclusively written for the soundtrack.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I will be released on Nov. 21 while tickets will go on sale beginning Oct. 29.
