The single, which was released in September, was lauded as a glimpse of what will likely be the most-talked about soundtrack of 2014. It’s co-produced by Grammy winners Paul Epworth and Joel Little. Lorde’s been having a great year. She was just on the cover of Elle, and since the release of her quadruple platinum selling “Royals,” she has been unofficially deemed the alt artist of the year. Currently she holds the record, due to “Royals,” for the longest No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 by a female artist. “Mockingjay,” based on a series of books written by Suzanne Collins, stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth.
