Check Out Lorde’s New Single From ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Soundtrack ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’


17-year-old Royals singer Lorde has released "Yellow Flicker Beat," her new single off of the soundtrack for the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

Entertainment Weekly writes the track "is a banger and sounds tailor-made for a blockbuster—meaning most of it resembles the generic epic fare designed to underscore a major battle or ending credits."

Give it a listen, AFTER THE JUMP

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One opens November 21 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Jeffrey Wright, Donald Sutherland, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, and Natalie Dormer.

    Seems like at her young age, she is already locked into a songwriting “formula.” Hope not, though, she’s extremely talented.

    Gritty and powerful, it’s perfect for this Franchise. Her voice has a “don’t give a f*ck” vibe, Hellz yeah

    It’s amazing how much we absolutely worship youth in our culture. People will trip over themselves to fall in line behind some teenage “genius” and every time someone mentions him or her they will make sure to refer to them as “15-year-old singing sensation…” or whatever. Not that I’m saying that a teenager can’t be a prodigy, of course, but it makes me roll my eyes to hear people fawn over some new talent because they’re young, as if there’s some bias against young people in the entertainment industry that they have had to overcome.

    What is she, like 17? What were you doing at 17 years old? I think this is quite accomplished and shows talent way beyond her years. I wish that I had grown up in a world where youth had more “appeal”, I might have done more with my life.
