New Music: Lorde

So movie soundtracks are a big deal these days, especially for big budget blockbusters like The Hunger Games Saga. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon seeing as it is a quick and easy way to get an instant hit and present your music to the mainstream market. So far the soundtrack sequel to the incredibly popular franchise has included The National, Of Monsters and Men and The Lumineers. The most recent edition is Lorde, who contributed a brilliant low-fi version of Tears For Fears massive 80s hit Everybody Wants To Rule The World. She was barely a twinkle in her fathers eye when the song was released, but her cover and sound suits the premise of the movie perfectly, and is a brilliant edition to what is already shaping up to be a pretty decent OST.

Take a listen to Lorde’s contribution here.
