Stream The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack in full now [LISTEN]
Wait no longer. Universal Republic is streaming the star-studded soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire full one week ahead of its official release via iTunes.
The 15-song soundtrack features Lorde's bewitching cover of Tear's For Fears' "Everybody Wants To Rule The World," The National's haunting "Lean," Coldplay's piano-driven ballad "Atlas." The tracklist also includes songs by Of Monsters and Men, The Weeknd, The Lumineers, Phantogram, Ellie Goulding, Christina Aguilera and more.
Republic executive VP Tom Mackay talked to Billboard about how the soundtrack came to be.
"On this one we wanted to get away from the concept of one producer producing everything," he told them. "Without T Bone (Burnett) on the first one we would not have gotten those bands (Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Arcade Fire). Now it's a franchise. We basically said, 'Here are the rules: You're going to send in a demo and we may ping-pong it with you to craft it, but once that demo is approved you are free to use whoever you want and do whatever you want. Send it back to us and we'll work with you on the mix.' I think a lot of the bands were excited about the autonomy we gave them on the production side."
The soundtrack is officially due out November 19. The film, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks, his theatres November 22.
