In addition to providing a song for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1', the 'Royals' singer will hand-pick the artists for the soundtrack album.

Lorde will make a big contribution to the soundtrack of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1". It was announced on Thursday, July 31 that the New Zealand singer would have the first single from the highly-anticipated movie and she'd also hand-pick the artists for the soundtrack album.

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," said Lorde, who previously covered Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" for the soundtrack of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire".

"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 added.

The soundtrack album of "Mockingjay" is scheduled to be released this fall via Republic Records. Meanwhile, the film is slated to open in U.S. theaters on November 21. Directed by Francis Lawrence, the third "Hunger Games" film will star Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth among others.
