Chemical Brothers, Lorde, and Miguel team up for 'Hunger Games' track

Posted on

Chemical Brothers

Lorde has been busy curating the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, which now includes a Chemical Brothers song titled “This is Not a Game” featuring Miguel and Lorde herself.

“This is Not a Game” is a ready-for-radio pop track, complete with Lorde’s dark vocals interrupting every so often to proclaim, “There it is,” and a moment of calm during the bridge that’s quickly ruined by frantic synths. The track first premiere on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 Radio Show and is available to listen at Billboard.

This is the second track released from the soundtrack; the first was Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat.” The entire soundtrack comes out Nov. 17, and Mockingjay arrives in theaters Nov. 21.
