On the heels of The Chemical Brothers debuting their song from the Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack today on BBC Radio 1 (listen to it here, via directlyrics), the Lorde-curated companion album has unveiled its (nearly) full tracklist today as pre-orders go live on the UK iTunes Store today (Tuesday, October 21). The album will be released there (and other international territories we presume) on November 17, and Yellow Flicker Beat and This Is Not A Game are available to purchase right now. Check out the full tracklist below:
1. Meltdown (feat. Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip & HAIM) - Stromae 4:01 2. Dead Air - CHVRCHES 3:14 3. Scream My Name - Tove Lo 3:34 4. Kingdom (feat. Simon Le Bon) - Charli XCX 4:04 5. Track 5 - Various Artists 0:06 6. Lost Souls - Raury 2:53 7. Yellow Flicker Beat - Lorde 3:54 8. The Leap - Tinashé 4:06 9. Plan the Escape - Bat for Lashes 2:30 10.

We are definitely intrigued by the yet-unannounced placeholder track 5…maybe The Lumineers’ and Jen Lawrence’s rendition of The Hanging Tree?
Thanks to a UMG press booklet that has made its way online a few days ago, we’ve received some additional details on the release plans for the Mockingjay Part 1 official soundtrack album, which has been curated by Lorde.
Here’s the rundown of the latest info:
The music video for Yellow Flicker Beat will be released on VEVO this Thursday (October 16th). This date is listed as TBC, but should be correct.
The official tracklist (with artists) and more details from the soundtrack album will be revealed in a press release next Tuesday (October 21st).
Lorde is scheduled for a “major TV” appearance closer to the release of the film in late November, to perform a song from the album (presumably Yellow Flicker Beat).
SiriusXM will be hosting a Lorde takeover from November 14 - 16, where she will be hosting a world premiere of all of the songs from the album prior to its release on the 18th.
