July 31, 2014 — Multi platinum, highly decorated recording artist Lorde, who as of publication is most assuredly making preparations for her upcoming North American tour in the fall, has just announced that she will also be curating the soundtrack album for the upcoming film Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1 as well providing the album with its first single.

Lorde has been dominating the international pop music scene as of late making appearances at Coachella in Calif., Lollapalooza in Chicago, Bonnaroo in Tenn., and Osheaga in Montreal among many of the world’s biggest music festivals. While her breakout single “Royals” off of her debut album Pure Heroine has been racking up the honors and awards such as two Billboard Music Awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song. She has also garnered two Grammy awards including Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo.

“Royals” also holds the distinction of holding the number one spot on Billboard alternative chart longer than any other song ever that was made by a female artist. Also the quadruple platinum song was also on Billboard’s 2013 ‘Hot 100’ longer than any other song made by a female artist.

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance. 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,” she said in a press release.

The 17-year-old young woman from Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand has accomplished so much in so little time, and now stepping into the film industry seems like the only untapped frontier for the young pop artist.
