Music Musings: Here’s the Full Tracklist for Lorde’s Hunger Games Soundtrack


Let’s give a round of applause to Lorde. Though she’s just one year past her (Grammy Award-winning) debut, the 17-year-old has curated one of the most-anticipated movie soundtracks of 2014. If Katniss Everdeen had an iPod, this would be on heavy rotation.

Aside from recording “Yellow Flicker Beat” for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, she pulled together some of the hottest names in music—Kanye West, Miguel, CHVRCHES, Charli XCX—for a collaborative cinematic feat. 

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” she 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.”

One song on the 14-track list remains a mystery, but here, in all of its Panem glory, is Mockingjay’s Lorde-approved listening experience:
