Yellow Flicker Beat, the first song from the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay soundtrack, has been released. The song, written and performed by New Zealand teen superstar Lorde, captures all the pain and rage the main character, Katniss Everdeen, would be expected to feel after two years of incessant exploitation and endangerment. The lyrics, which you can read here, are dark, moody and full of  images of fire and revenge. It is exactly the mental state we will find Katniss in when Mockingjay opens November 21st.
