Praise Lorde! Chvrches Releases 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Track 'Dead Air'
"Dead Air" finds Chvrches in familiar territory, full of chirpy synths and a heartfelt, understated chorus. Hard to imagine it appearing in the world of the Hunger Games -- although the line "there is a strength in enduring" certainly applies -- but that's fine, since most of the soundtrack was created as a companion to the film, not as a proper soundtrack.
The full Mockingjay tracklist is finally out with the revelation that the mysterious unnamed "Track 5" will be a collaboration between Ariana Grande and Major Lazer.
As to how this eclectic collection came together, Lorde recently told Billboard about cold-calling Kanye West and Grace Jones in her magazine cover story, which you should check out here.
