Lorde to curate "Hunger Games" soundtrack
Lorde will curate the soundtrack for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'.
The 'Royals' hitmaker - who covered the track 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World' for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' theme tune - will curate the soundtrack and provide the first single for the highly anticipated upcoming third instalment in the franchise.
The movies - which are directed by Francis Lawrence - are based on the novels by Suzanne Collins and star Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark.
Lawrence said of Lorde's involvement in the upcoming movie: ''I sat down with Lorde on the set of 'Mockingjay' this spring and I was immediately struck by how she so innately understood what we, as both fans and filmmakers, were trying to accomplish with the film.
''Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay's characters and themes not only had enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film's essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assembled the other songs on our soundtrack.''
Lorde, 17, confessed she was intimidated by the task of putting together the soundtrack for the entire film but admitted that as she was such a big fan she was honoured to be given the opportunity.
She said: ''Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance.''
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1' is slated for release on November 21 2014.
