Lorde covers Bright Eyes in new, very emotional 'Mockingjay' song

Posted on

In a new song from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde covers Bright Eyes’ “Ladder Song.” The slow jam sets a fairly melancholy mood with talk of traitors and people who used to be “friends of mine.”

With that in mind, the song could very easily lend itself to a Katniss-Peeta moment, among other options. Regardless, based on the song’s tempo, the odds are definitely in favor of the moment being an emotional one. (Read: Expect tears.)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 opens Nov. 21.
