Bat for Lashes – “Plan The Escape” (Son Lux Cover)
The Lorde-curated Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 soundtrack comes out next week, and tracks are starting to come out left and right. In the past two weeks alone, we’ve heard the Stromae posse cut “Meltdown” featuring Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and Haim; Major Lazer’s Ariana Grande collaboration “All My Love,” Kanye’s rework of “Yellow Flicker Beat,” and Chvrches’ “Dead Air.” Now, here’s a dark, oppressive, and really beautiful track from Bat For Lashes called “Plan The Escape,” which is a cover of a Son Lux song from their 2013 album Lanterns. Natasha Khan has never sounded so good (or maybe it’s just been too long since I’ve listened to The Haunted Man). Listen below.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 OST is out 11/18 via Republic.
