Lorde gives a interview about writing Yellow Flicker Beat and curating the soundtrack

Lorde has spoken to KROQ about writing Yellow Flicker Beat and curating the soundtrack as a whole. Lorde in the interview talks about the point of inspiration from book for the song (major non reader spoiler cant imagine Loinsgate is happy about her saying that on air) Yellow Flicker Beat and the responsibility of being asked to curate the soundtrack.

The past year has been a whirlwind for the 17 year old musician, who’s recently taken on a new task as well: curating movie soundtracks. Lorde also put pen to paper and created her own song for the soundtrack as well, titled “Yellow Flicker Beat.”

“Basically I wrote the song specifically for the movie, it wasn’t something that I had to draft up previously. I reread the books, and I just wanted to tap into everything that Katniss is feeling in that film and what’s the crazy stuff that goes on. One of the things that happened in the book which to me felt like this crazy turning point was her best friend Peeta tries to kill her, he’s been brainwashed and tries to strangle her. It just felt like something so irreparable and something that the characters couldn’t turn back from. I felt like Katniss was like ‘okay, I’m taking names. I’m coming for blood. You don’t do these types of things to my friends and family and get away with it.’ I just wanted to make something kind of dark and haunting.”

“It’s weird because everything that the character could think or feel is already kind of laid out for you in the book. You can’t take that many leaps, it becomes your song and not their song so it was definitely about keeping in that mindset and just thinking about ‘What would Katniss do?,’ but she’s such an awesome character to write for and it was such an awesome experience. There couldn’t have been a better character for me to write from the perspective of.”

On curating ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ soundtrack:

“I got approached to curate the soundtrack a few months ago and I was like ‘OK, this sounds super fun but super hard… which was pretty accurate. It’s been a crazy process, super intense.”

“No one gives some random 17 year old from New Zealand the opportunity to soundtrack a major motion picture… It’s been very cool and I’m so glad that I’ve had the opportunity.”

“I’m so stoked that people feel comfortable giving me these responsibilities and it helps me to grow. It gives me different experiences that I just wouldn’t have so you know, I’m so happy. It’s so awesome, I’m so lucky.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 original soundtrack is expected in stores this fall, in advance of the film’s release on Nov. 21.

“Yellow Flicker Beat,” Lorde’s Track Off the Mockingjay Pt. 1 Soundtrack Released

 

The first single off the Mockingjay pt. 1 soundtrack, Lorde`s Yellow Flicker Beat  has been released after days of teasing.

You can also listen now via Spotify!

Here are the complete song lyrics

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
They keep my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fire
And my necklace is rope, I tire and I tire
And our people talk to me but nothing ever hits
So people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes

I’m going in! Ooh!

This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart

We rip the start
The colors disappear
I never watch the stars, there’s so much down there
So I just try, keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart

I dream of you, but they’re not the same kind
And my shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time
And my people talk to me, I’m slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me

I’m going in! Ooh!

This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart

We rip the start
The colors disappear
I never watch the stars, there’s so much down there
So I just try, keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart

New #Mockingjay Still Features Effie

Today, we saw new stills of Haymitch and saluting the Mockingjay. And now, The Hunger Games official Instagram has given us yet another still: Effie Trinket!

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 6.34.22 PM

@ElizabethBanks shows you the woman behind the couture as #EffieTrinket in @TheHungerGames: #Mockingjay Part 1.

Well, she certainly looks sad in this still. Is she being mistreated in district 13 or just sad to be stuck in such unimaginative clothing? We’d love to hear what you think!

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?

Look at Katniss giving hope to the rebels of District 8 in her first act as the Mockingjay. But if you’ve read the book, you know what comes next.

Is this how you pictured the District 8 hospital? Let us know what you think!
