Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat,” released in September, was already dramatic. Then it got an eerie makeover by Kanye West for the Hunger Games soundtrack.
Lorde curated the Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 soundtrack, and it includes “Yellow Flicker Beat” and West’s rework of the track, which appeared on the Kiwi singer’s YouTube Monday. The original sounds like it’s ripped straight from Pure Heroine; West’s version retains that sound while also giving it a darker, ominous feel.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 arrives in theaters Nov. 20 and the soundtrack will be available Nov. 17.
