Lorde to Curate, Release First Single From ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ Soundtrack
Lorde can now add soundtrack curator to her resume. The world’s oldest teenager has been tapped to select the artists who will appear on the soundtrack to the next ‘Hunger Games’ installment, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.’
“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde said in a statement. “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.”
While she hasn’t revealed who’s on her shortlist yet, Lorde has announced that she’ll be recording and releasing the soundtrack’s first single. The movie comes out on Nov. 21.
In the meantime, Lorde will be on the road … again. She’s all set to launch her third North American tour. You can find a list of dates as well as ticket info on her website.
