With the release of new song ‘Atlas,’ we finally get our first taste of the ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ soundtrack — and get to hear new Coldplay music for the first time in two years!
The dreamy, piano-driven track was clearly written specifically for ‘Catching Fire,’ with lyrics like “some bend the bow” — about bow-and-arrow-wielding heroine Katniss, presumably — and “caught in the fire” (pretty self-explanatory). Chris Martin’s voice soars over the music, often repeating the refrain, “Carry your world.” It is the first song the band has ever written for a soundtrack.
No word yet on when we might hear yet more from the British band, whose last new music was 2011’s ‘Mylo Xyloto.’ They are currently almost a year into their announced three-year break from touring.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ movie, the much-anticipated sequel to the 2012 blockbuster starring Jennifer Lawrence, is in theaters Nov. 22. The soundtrack is expected to drop shortly before.
