We just got so much more excited for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1’ — if that’s even possible! The film’s team announced on July 31 that a Lorde hit will not only be the soundtrack’s lead single, but she will be curating the entire soundtrack!
It’s safe to say that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack will be one of the best soundtracks we’ve heard in awhile. Mostly because Lorde, 17, herself will sing the soundtrack’s lead single and she will also be curating the soundtrack for the third Hunger Games movie! Read on to find out what Lorde said about the big news!
Lorde Will Curate ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ Soundtrack
Lorde is continuing to prove that 2014 is her year! At just 17 years old, the singer already has two Grammy’s and two Billboard Music Awards under her belt.
On July 31, the film’s film distribution company, Lionsgate, announced that Lorde will play a major role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1 soundtrack.
“In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay- Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the highly anticipated film and album. The soundtrack will be available via Republic Records this fall,” reads the official statement from Lionsgate on July 31.
This is so exciting!
Lorde On Curating The Soundtrack: ‘I Jumped At The Chance’
“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance. 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,” Lorde said in the statement.
We’re not surprised she’s taking on such a huge project. After all, Lorde continues to break through the music industry and win us over with hits like “Royals” — which went quadruple platinum!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1 will hit theaters November 21, 2014, and the soundtrack will be released this fall.
