In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the highly anticipated film and album.  


“I sat down with Lorde on the set of ‘Mockingjay’ this spring and I was immediately struck by how she so innately understood what we, as both fans and filmmakers, were trying to accomplish with the film. Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay’s characters and themes not only have enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assemble the other songs on our soundtrack.  I can’t wait to share what she’s done with the fans — it is truly remarkable,” said Francis Lawrence.

Lorde’s unique position as both a songwriter/performer and the curator of the Mockingjay – Part 1soundtrack album came about via her unique relationship with her music publisher, SONGS Music Publishing who was a key architect of the deal.

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde.  “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”

THECAPITOL.PN Celebrates District Heroes

The release TheCapitol.PN spoke of is here and looks to be the beginning of Mockingjay’s marketing. Yahoo! has released Panem’s “District Heroes”, honoring the small citizens who contribute to the success and flourishing of Panem. No doubt to distract us from the truth, RIGHT GUYS?!

You can also check large images of the District Heroes and compelete MANDATORY registration for Capitol TV @ the newly designed THECAPITOL.PN
So it seems The Capitol is “appreciating” it’s citizens in the face of all out war. Which leads us to wonder…… too little too late?
