Lorde Releases “Yellow Flicker Beat” from Mockingjay Part 1 – Taylor Swift Fangirls!

lorde-yellowflickerbeat-092914The first song from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has finally arrived!!

GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist Lorde is curating the soundtrack and today she unveiled her new single “Yellow Flicker Beat.” The song is available on iTunes HERE!

We love the song and it really sets the mood for the upcoming movie. Someone else who is a fan – Taylor Swift! Lorde’s BFF took to instagram to share some of the lyrics on a notepad and sing her praises for the 17-year-old.

Lorde took to instagram to return the love to Taylor saying, “this girl was the first person i played yellow flicker beat to, and she was instantly obsessed with it/would make me play it to our other friends in her kitchen like a proud mom. in return i make her put on my favourite jams from her new record and flail around wildly/smile like a crazy person. it’s the coolest thing in the world having friends who make incredible music AND having them cheering you on when it’s time for your own to be released. so pumped for them to hear 1989. #iheartswift.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 was directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson. The film is the latest installment in Lionsgate’s global box office phenomenon based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling “Hunger Games” trilogy and will be released in theaters worldwide on November 21, 2014.
