Lorde - Yellow Flicker Beat

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Lorde
  • Track: Yellow Flicker Beat
  • Producer: Paul Epworth
  • Album: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack

If there are two things young ladies (and quite a few men) can't get enough of, they're Lorde and The Hunger Games. So is it any surprise that those pop-cultural phenomena have collided to create new single Yellow Flicker Beat? To answer my own rhetorical question, absolutely not. Even those who aren't into young adult literature or their movie adaptations will find quite a bit to appreciate about this freshly-minted single off the next film's soundtrack. From the singer's breathy vocals and oblique lyrics, to Paul Epworth's pulsing synth beat, everything about the record drips with cinematic atmosphere. An official release date for the Mockingjay Part One soundtrack LP has yet to be announced, but the film is scheduled to hit theaters everywhere on Friday, November 21.
