Although the Hunger Games
films are a perfect example of why some fictional series are best suited for prime time television (see: Game of Thrones
), we can't deny that the makers of the flicks do put together pretty stacked soundtracks. And though these soundtracks will never be heard during the film, and are only used as promotional tools and end scroll decor, we'll still continue to feed the beast by writing about each and every awesome song that comes off of them. That being said, Hunger Games: Catching Fire
has released a follow-up track to Coldplay's "Atlas"
that will be featured on its forthcoming album. The song, "Elastic Heart", is performed by Australian pop singer Sia, and featuring The Weeknd and Diplo. It's a synth-pop ballad that will pull at every string of your psyche, making you want to turn into some ass-kicking teenage girl.
The soundtrack is set to release on November 19th via Republic, and the film will follow on November 22nd.
