Lorde curating Hunger Games OST

By | Published on Friday 1 August 2014


Lorde has a new curatorial job: choosing the songs that’ll go on the soundtrack to the latest film in the ‘The Hunger Games’ series, ‘Mockingjay Part 1’.

As well as selecting the artists and tracklisting, Ms Lorde has written a TBA lead single to feature on the movie’s OST ahead of its cinema release in November.

And she says: “Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance. 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 previous soundtrack albums in the ‘Hunger Games’ series haven’t had celebrity curators, but have featured contributions from Coldplay and Arcade Fire.
