From one "pure heroine" to another: Lorde will hand-pick the artists for the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 and provide the lead single for the album, which will be released this fall. The film version of Mockingjay -- Part 1 hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2014.
Lorde's friend Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars provided the lead single, "Safe and Sound," for the original Hunger Games film. That soundtrack topped the Billboard 200 album chart, and won a Grammy for best song written for visual media. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack included the single "We Remain," by Christina Aguilera, and also featured Lorde's "Everybody Wants To Rule The World."
