Lorde, the 17-year-old New Zealand songstress, has already accomplished more than most people in their entire lives. Besides winning two Grammys and touring the entire world, she can now cross curating a major motion picture soundtrack off her list.
It was just announced that she was chosen to release the lead single for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, as well as curating the soundtrack.
"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde explained, "The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will hit theaters November 21, 2014.
