This morning Lorde's notorious breathy growls were heard around the world, as her track "Yellow Flicker Beat," written for the Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, was released. The tune is dark, exciting, and unequivocally Lorde. Just as epic as the anticipated movie promises to be, "Yellow Flicker Beat" is an accessible, empowering, chick ballad which holds its own against Lorde's previous triumphs of a similar ilk. Along with creating this track, Lorde also had the daunting undertaking of curating the soundtrack in its entirety. She explains; "Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," and we're neither shocked nor disappointed that she did. After all, what would Katniss do?
