As most 17 year olds are getting ready to go back to school, Lorde is working feverishly to finish her latest project. She is set to curate and produce the single for the third installment of the Hunger Games: Mocking jay- part 1 via Republic Records.

Lorde became the obvious choice to curate the newest Mocking Jay Project  after her contribution on the  1985 Tears of Fears cover,  “Everyone wants to rule the world” on Hunger Games:  Catching fire soundtrack.

“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.”

Although the film is set to be released November 21st , it still remains to be seen  when  the soundtrack and lorde’s single will be confirmed to  debut.
