AceShowbiz - Earlier this month, %cLorde% announced that she'd created a new song titled "Yellow Flicker Beat" for the soundtrack of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1". After previewing its lyrics in some Instagram posts, the singer revealed the track in full on Monday, September 29.
The mid-tempo pop/rock tune sounds like "Royals" or "Team" from Lorde's 2013 debut album "Pure Heroine". Over minimal synths and rattling drums, she sings, "I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm/ And the scars that mark my body/ They're silver and gold."
Lorde revealed in a Tumblr post that she worked on "Yellow Flicker Beat" between shows on her tour. "Every night, after I play, and say hi, and take pictures, and I walk up the stairs and we go on our way, I set up in this little bed office. I work from midnight until late on the soundtrack, singing into my computer, listening to demos and final mixes," she wrote.
" ['Yellow Flicker Beat' is] my first offering from what I hope will be a soundtrack you love. It's my attempt at getting inside her head, Katniss'. I hope you like it," she added.
In addition to providing an original song for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1", Lorde is curating the highly-anticipated movie's soundtrack. Details about the record, including official tracklisting and release date, are still kept under tight wraps. Meanwhile, the movie starring %cJennifer Lawrence% and %cLiam Hemsworth% among others will open in U.S. theaters on November 21.
