Lorde Talks About Her Vision for Curating the 'Mockingjay Part 1' Soundtrack

Billboard recently sat down with Lorde to discuss her vision for curating the Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack.

"I was really interested in that because I love Katniss as a character," Lorde says. "I think she's so complex."

"It was really important to me with the soundtrack that people know how involved I was. A lot of that was me reaching out to people directly, having a conversation on the phone, sending an email, sending a text, because I wanted people to know that your song isn't just going to be flung into some pot and chosen later. I really cared about what was happening."

Other contributors she talks about are Grace Jones, Charli XCX and Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran, as well as Miguel and The Chemical Brothers, whose track with Lorde,"This Is Not a Game," dropped yesterday. You can pre-order the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Various Artists in iTunes HERE.
