It's time to head to Chvrches and give praise to Lorde: Lauren Mayberry & Co's new song from the Lorde-curated Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack is here!

"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.
