A new song is coming from Lorde’s direction courtesy of the next Hunger Games soundtrack. “Yellow Flicker Beat” will be included on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay [Part 1], which hits theaters on November 21.
On the heels of The Chemical Brothers debuting their song from the Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack today on BBC Radio 1 (listen to it here, via directlyrics), the Lorde-curated companion album has unveiled its (nearly) full tracklist today as pre-orders go live on the UK iTunes Store today (Tuesday, October 21). The album will be released there (and other international territories we presume) on November 17, and Yellow Flicker Beat and This Is Not A Game are available to purchase right now. Check out the full tracklist below:

We are definitely intrigued by the yet-unannounced placeholder track 5…maybe The Lumineers’ and Jen Lawrence’s rendition of The Hanging Tree?
