Lorde To Curate The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Soundtrack

Last year’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had a pretty strong soundtrack, by blockbuster standards; the makers of the new Transformers are not, after all, calling the National and asking them for new songs. But the new Hunger Games movie, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, might be better, thanks to a match made in thoughtful-teenager heaven. Lorde, who covered Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” on the Catching Fire soundtrack, will hand-pick all the artists who will appear on the new movie’s soundtrack, which is out this fall on Republic. Expect so much Bright Eyes! Lorde will also give the album its first single, which will probably not just be about how we’ll never be victors. But we can hope.
