Lorde has a new gig. The singer, 17, will curate the soundtrack album for the upcoming third installment of the global blockbuster The Hunger Games franchise: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.
In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the film and album. The soundtrack will be available via Republic Records this fall.
"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," said Lorde. "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."
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, is the latest installment in Lionsgate's global box office smash. It is out November 21.
