so word’s out.. i have been announced as the sole curator of the soundtrack for the next hunger games instalment, MOCKINGJAY - PART 1 (!!!) http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2014/07/31/lorde-hunger-games-mockingjay-single-soundtrack/13404013/
to be at the helm of a project like this is easily the most responsibility i’ve ever had, and to me, that says something kind of amazing about the way the world is changing - a globally successful film franchise is allowing a teenager to run their shit. we are opening doors, we are moving walls. this makes me so insanely happy.
the first single from the soundtrack is a brand new song i wrote with joel. to use a really bad pun, it’s fire.
love you so much. thanks for all you’ve given me. can’t wait to tell you more.
What if they'd told a bunch of teen singers "it's you! You have sole control of the soundtrack for the next hunger game movie!" But then when you show up to the studio they make you fight everyone else for it as a thematic link to the story
how do you know that wasn’t what happened..
