This morning Lorde dropped her new single to the Hunger Games soundtrack: “Yellow Flicker Beat.” It’s got Lorde written all over it, her honey-deep voice enunciating every syllable. It begins quietly and ends with an explosive dance beat that further cements her growing stardom.
Brace yourselves: Lorde is releasing a new single Monday, Sept. 29. Prepare for social-media implosion.
It’s only one song really, but hearing new music from the teen-alt dynamo for the first time since “Pure Heroin” is big news for Lorde fans.
According to a story at Consequence of Sound, Lorde wrote the song, “Yellow Flicker Beat,” for “The Hunger Games-Mockingjay Part 1” movie soundtrack. “Hunger Games” is set for release Nov. 21.
Another juicy snippet, according to Consequence of Sound — Lorde is allegedly working on new music with Kanye West.
But it was also rumoured not that long ago (August) that West and Paul McCartney were collaborating, and how is that going? Only time will tell.
For now, look for “Yellow Flicker Beat” on Monday or just check your local Twitter location.
