Sia - "Elastic Heart"

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a teenager-targeted blockbuster movie about control and calculation and heartlessness and struggle, so maybe it’s appropriate that the Weeknd shows up on a couple of tracks on the movie’s soundtrack. Other than Coldplay’s “Atlas,” the first song we’ve heard from that soundtrack is “Elastic Heart,” from the Australian adult-contempo pop star Sia. The track also features production from Diplo (in muted and emotive “Climax” form) and the Weeknd (sounding way more vulnerable than usual). It’s a grand and pretty song, and it won’t give you the creeps the way the Weeknd songs ordinarily might. Listen to it below.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack is out 11/19 on Republic.

  1. Sia, make up your mind. First you’re titanium, now you’re elastic??

  2. I think I like her contribution to the Great Gatsby OST better.

  3. I really like The Weeknd’s vocals on this. Great song!
