Listen to Lorde’s ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ From ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′by Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
We’re already obsessed with the fact that Lorde has curated the soundtrack to ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,’ so of course we can’t stop listening to her own song from the film, ‘Yellow Flicker Beat,’ which just dropped today (Sept. 29).
“I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm,” Lorde breathes on the first line. “And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold.”
The spooky anthem definitely has that trademark, hauntingly Lorde sound, and we couldn’t think of a better person to croon the tune — let alone curate the entire soundtrack. The dark, almost ghostly vibe that Lorde’s music evokes is perfect match for ‘The Hunger Games’ — particularly ‘Mockingjay.’
“They used to shout my name, now they whisper it,” Lorde sings on the chorus of ‘Yellow Flicker Beat,’ and we can’t help but think of Katniss, who was once looked at as a heroine and has now been chosen as a symbol of rebellion against the Capitol.
Give ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ a listen above, and get ready for ‘Mockingjay,’ which is set to hit theaters on Nov. 21.
