And soon you'll hear the Catching Fire theme song... performed by Coldplay! Director Francis Lawrence confirmed the participation of this group in a statement today.
"I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film," Lawrence said. "Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can't wait to share this music with audiences around the world."
Adds Tracy McKnight, Lionsgate's Head of Film Music:
"We are so honored that Coldplay, one of the iconic rock bands of our generation, will perform the first song out on the new soundtrack. Knowing that Chris Martin is a fan of the books makes this even more meaningful. The Coldplay single underscores the stature of recording artists we've assembled for this powerful soundtrack."
The Hunger Games sequel comes out on November 22 and you can expect many more soundtrack announcements to be made in the coming weeks.
