Hear Lorde’s new single, ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’
The wait for new music from Lorde is over. Today (Sept. 29), Lorde unleashed her new single, “Yellow Flicker Beat,” which will be included on the soundtrack of “The Hunger Games — Mockingjay Part 1.”
The song sounds like something you would hear out of Lorde, with a minimalist feel and building aura. In a message on her Tumblr page, Lorde explained, “It’s my first offering from what i hope will be a soundtrack you love. it’s my attempt at getting inside her head: katniss’. i hope you like it.”
Lorde went on to thank her fans for the triumph of her debut album, “Pure Heroine,” which arrived one year ago.
“The past year of my life has seen everything around me multiply in size and number — the stamps on my passport, the number of people i have to ask before i ride on the ferris wheel after my set at a festival, the decibels that follow me when i walk around in public. the other thing that’s grown is me — my fitness, my mental stamina, my ability to think clearly and make decisions — but most of all, my capacity for love. The thousands upon thousands (wait, millions(?!!)) of you who bought pure heroine truly feel like friends to me…i never knew i could feel such a warm heart for this many people at once. thankyou for hearing about me all those months ago, and sticking around.”
The soundtrack of “The Hunger Games — Mockingjay Part 1” will hit stores on Nov. 11 via Republic, and the film will reach movie theaters on Nov. 21.
