Lorde has been tasked with selecting the artists who will be featured on the album. The New Zealand pop singer will also record the first single.
Lorde had this statement in the press release: “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.”
This project is not the first time Lorde has been involved with The Hunger Games film franchise. Fans can hear her cover of the song “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (originally recorded by Tears for Fears) on the Catching Fire soundtrack.
