Lorde To Curate Next Hunger Games Soundtrack

by Paul Cashmere on August 1, 2014

in Live,News

Lorde has been chosen to curate the soundtrack for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’.

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde. “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’ is the next line on the Hunger Games franchise. The new movie is the first in a trilogy. It was directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutchinson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson.

Lorde will perform at Lollapalooza today (August 1) and start her North American tour in Philadelphia on September 5.
