Lorde will write the soundtrack of the upcoming movie Hunger Games: Mocking Jay – Part 1 … and she will also personally pick the artistes who will feature on the album.
The 17-year old Grammy winner tweeted the news on Thursday, writing, ‘I am so pleased and proud to have been announced the sole curator of the soundtrack for MOCKINGJAY – PART 1. Building this thing piece by piece has been amazing. I can’t wait to share the other artists’ contributions with you.’
Later in a statement, Lorde said, ‘Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance. 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,’ she finished.
The Royals singer previously covered Tears For Fears’ classic hit Everybody Wants To Rule The World for last year’s Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
Mocking Jay – Part 1 has been scheduled to premiere in November 11.
