The slow and soft track is about the complicated love relationship between Liam Hemworth's Gale Hawthorne and Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.
When the full tracklist of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" soundtrack arrived, it was revealed that The Lumineers had recorded a song for the movie. A video of the band performing "Gale Song" at Marymoor Park in Washington last week has just landed online, giving first listen to the track.
The song's title refers to Gale Hawthorne, a character in the upcoming movie that is depicted by Liam Hemsworth. The soft and slow track is about the complicated love relationship between Gale and Katniss Everdeen, which is played by Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence.
"I was ten thousand miles away/ So when you hear my voice, when you say my name," sings the band's vocalist, Wesley Schultz. "And there was time when I stood in line for love, for love, for love/ But I let you go, I let you go."
"Gale Song" is the third song off "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" soundtrack that fans have listened to. Coldplay released their "Atlas" earlier this month, while Christina Aguilera previewed her "We Remain" on Thursday, September 26.
The soundtrack of the movie also includes tracks by Imagine Dragons, Lorde, The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding and Santigold among others. The album is scheduled to be released on November 19, three days before the movie hits U.S. theaters on November 22.
