Lorde will set your heart on fire as the much anticipated soundtrack for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” has been released!
Titled “Yellow Flicker Beat”, the song is Lorde’s lead single from the soundtrack album that she curated for the upcoming YA sci-fi thriller film “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1”. It is the second song that Lorde has performed for the film as the previous film “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” featured her cover version of the classic song “Everybody Wants to Rule The World”.
The 17-year-old singer previously teased the lead single on Instagram by scribbling the second line of the lyrics on the back of her hand:
After the song was released, the Grammy award-winning singer expressed her gratitude by posting a thank-you note on Tumblr.
In the thank-you note, the singer described that she set up in her “little bed office” and has worked “from midnight until late on the soundtrack”. With the amount of love and support she received from the fans, the singer felt obliged to post the thank-you note, a place where she feels the most happy and safe online.
Lorde then ended the note by saying that the song is the first offering from what she hopes will be a soundtrack the fans will love:
it’s my attempt at getting inside her head, katniss’. i hope you like it.
