Lorde Tweets Release Timing of First ‘Mockingjay Part 1’ Soundtrack Single ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’

Lorde Mockingjay Single Image

Ever since it was announced that Lorde would curate the soundtrack for Mockingjay Part 1 as well as contribute her own music, we’ve all been excited to hear the first single. We recently learned that a contribution from Lorde herself, “Yellow Flicker Beat”, would be the first track to release this Monday. Lorde has been teasing the fandom with tweets revealing some of the song lyrics and now has finally let everyone know through her twitter exactly what time the single will hit the internet tomorrow for all to hear!

The track will release at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET (and 4 PM for those of us in the UK).

I am very excited to listen to the first song from the soundtrack! The lyrics are fun, but there’s really no way to tell what the tone of the song will be like without the music and voice all coming together. This has felt a lot like Coldplay’s “Atlas” last year. I was wary of the lyrics until I finally heard the song and I’m sure Lorde’s track will be amazing as well!

The citizens of District 8 stand beside the #Mockingjay. Do you?

Hmm… Haymitch looks very apprehensive in this picture. Might he be approaching a certain Mockingjay who tried to attack him in a previous encounter? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Lorde Tweets the Third Line from her #Mockingjay Single ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’

Yellow Flicker BeatThe first single from the Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack drops in a mere 2 days (are you as geeked as we are?) and Lorde is helping us countdown the days with more lyrics to her song Yellow Flicker Beat.

Today’s line — the 3rd in the song — Via Twitter

Putting it all together, this is what we have so far of the song…

I’m a princess cut from marble,
smoother than a storm
and the scars that mark my body
they’re silver and gold.
my blood is a flood of rubies,
precious stones.

What do you think so far? Here’s hoping we’ll get line 4 tomorrow! And maybe a hint at the timing of the release too? Here’s hoping!

Nothing stops #Messalla from getting the shot. Evan Ross (@eross88) joins the cast of @TheHungerGames: #Mockingjay Part 1.

I wonder where he is and what’s going on. And most importantly, what are the straps hoping to him? Any guesses? Let us know in the comments!

UPDATED New Stills: Plutarch Heavensbee and Gale Hawthorne

As you know, unless you’ve been hiding underground in District 13, we’ve been getting a lot of stills this week. Most recently, we saw Finnick and Boggs. But now, we have another image, and this one is bittersweet. Here’s the newest image, as seen on The Hungers Games official Instagram:

Screen Shot 2014-09-27 at 12.39.12 PM

Always one step ahead. Phillip Seymour Hoffman returns as #PlutarchHeavensbee in@TheHungerGames: #Mockingjay Part 1.

As I’m sure you’ve heard, we lost Philip Seymour Hoffman last year. This makes any images of Plutarch a mix of excitement and sadness. However, I love seeing him in his working zone, and here Plutarch looks hard at work thinking of new ways to mix it up in the Capital.

What do you think of this new image of our favorite Head Gamemaker? Let us know in the comments!


We also have a brand new still of Katniss’s best friend (though he’d like to be more), Gale Hawthorne! It’s also a little heartbreaking. And the caption lets us know what’s happening… pain, that’s what. Let us know what you think about this one in the comments, as well!

 Remembering the home he lost in the ruins of District 12, #GaleHawthorne. #Mockingjay

Lenny Kravitz wrote his new album Strut while filming Catching Fire

Lenny Kravitz has been doing the rounds recently promoting his new album Strut, which was written during his breaks filming Catching fire. Lenny Kravitz has given an interview to HNGN about how the music came him while in Atlanta filming Catching fire.

In the midst of shooting, “all of a sudden, all this music started coming into my head. I had to make a decision whether I was going to capture it or let it go,” recalls Kravitz. “I was waking up at 5 a.m. for these ridiculous actors’ hours. You’re working all day. This stuff was just coming into my head. It kept coming. I basically stayed awake for two weeks. I slept maybe one or two hours a night sometimes. I got all the music down.”

Gwendoline Christie talks about Commander Lyme

Gwendoline Christie of Games of Thrones fame, who replaced Lily Rabe as Commander Lyme in Mockingjay, has spoken briefly about the Hunger Games franchise and her character Commander Lyme.

I’m so excited to be part of a franchise I’ve admired so greatly – and one that has such a strong, positive female central figure in the form of Katniss,” she gushed.

“I play Commander Lyme, a previous victor of an unseen Hunger Games. She was one of the examples shown to Katniss and is now the rebel commander of District 2.”

Meet Egeria a New Addition to Snow`s Cabinet

Embedded image permalinkNew character alert! Egeria is a new addition to Snow`s cabinet and was recently interviewed by Capitol Couture about her job.Egeria, who we have seen before in the teaser trailer with President Snow, will probably not be all she says she is, but her interview may point to the true nature of her job and the new government branch The Capitol Ministry of Information.  

“the CMI is dedicated to improving system-wide functionality of Panem through information collection and analysis. The branch extends through the Capitol and all Districts”.

We think this may point to her instead being head of surveillance/spying looking for rebel communication’s, rebel groups and people with rebel sympathies.To read the full interview go to Capitol Couture. 

Let us know what you think of this new character in the comments and be sure to tell us what you think her job might really be!
