Whoa, super exciting news! Lionsgate announced this morning that Lorde will provide the first single to the Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack AND she will also be picking the rest of the artists on the soundtrack. Check out the press release below!

SANTA MONICA, CA, July 31, 2014 – Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a premier next generation global content leader, announced today that multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning recording star Lorde will curate the soundtrack album for the upcoming third installment of the global blockbusterThe Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the highly anticipated film and album. The soundtrack will be available via Republic Records this fall.

The 17-year-old New Zealand native –who will embark on her third national North American tour this fall– exploded onto the scene with her Number One global hit ‘Royals,’ and has taken the music world by storm since the release of her critically acclaimed platinum debut album “PURE HEROINE” [LAVA/Republic Records].

Her quadruple platinum selling single ‘Royals’ helped earn two Billboard Music Awards for ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Rock Song,’ and two GRAMMY® Awards for ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Solo Performance.’ She currently holds the record for ‘Longest #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Female Artist in 2013′ and longest standing #1 for any female artist in the Billboard Alternative Chart history

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, is the latest installment in Lionsgate’s global box office phenomenon based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling “Hunger Games” trilogy and will be released in theaters worldwide on November 21, 2014.

“I sat down with Lorde on the set of ‘Mockingjay’ this spring and I was immediately struck by how she so innately understood what we, as both fans and filmmakers, were trying to accomplish with the film. Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay’s characters and themes not only have enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assemble the other songs on our soundtrack. I can’t wait to share what she’s done with the fans — it is truly remarkable,” said Francis Lawrence.

Lorde’s unique position as both a songwriter/performer and the curator of the Mockingjay – Part 1soundtrack album came about via her unique relationship with her music publisher, SONGS Music Publishing who was a key architect of the deal.

“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.”

Check Out What the Rebels Wrote on TheCapitol.PN #OnePanem #OrNot

Some time last week, TheCapitol.PN updated with a One Panem section, which included three moving images (still photos seen below). The One Panem section seems to be in response to the Capitol Concerns section. But now, it looks like the rebels have busted into the site with a new message, but it is hidden. The original message “THE CAPITOL IS LISTENING” is in it’s normal place under Capitol Concerns. But double click the words and see what happens!

Hunger Games UK Teases Pirate Transmission from District 13 on Monday, July 28th

trailer teaseIf you’re like us and many other tributes around the world you are dying in anticipation for the “Our Leader the Mockingjay” trailer that debuted at SDCC earlier today.  Many of us have to wait until the trailer is officially online before we’ll get the opportunity to see it, (unless you can run to Best Buy this weekend) but so far there has been no word as to when that will be.  Well…no official word anyway.  A few hours ago, @HungerGamesUK put out a tease  on twitter that a “pirate transmission from District 13″ would be taking place on Monday, July 28th.  They also included the hashtag #OurLeadertheMockingjay, which is the nickname for the Mockingjay trailer. No time was listed, but hopefully we’ll get another tease yet this weekend to give us a heads up when to watch.

Just a few more days tributes…just a few more days…
