Pt. 1

lorde

Lorde’s curated Mockingjay, Pt. 1 soundtrack is HERE. The roster includes Stromae featuring Lorde (!?!), CHVRCHES, Tove Lo, Charli XCX, Major Lazer, Tinashe, Bat for Lashes, Grace Jones, XOV, The Chemical Brothers, Lorde, and Raury.  Talk about unique, eh?  I can foresee fans not accepting the diversity of the sound, but look at the diversity between the districts.  At first listen, I am intrigued most by Raury’s “Lost Souls;”  XOV’s “Animal” is a top track; and The Chemical Brothers totally capture the competition of the Games and simultaneous uncertainty of the future (rebellion) with “This Is Not a Game.”  Because really, is the theme of this series about just a game, or something deeper…

Lorde, I commend your choice in lyrical connections to the series, while creating a solid body of work that can be seen independently.  I’m eager to see how the tracks are played in the film.  In theaters this Thursday.
