Lending their musical talents to one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the year, Coldplay”s tune Atlas, will be featured on the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The band just a released a lyric video in support of the tune as well, check it out below!
The moody ballad was written specifically for the film and references Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) weapon of choice, a bow and arrow. It also seems to refer to the political unrest erupting in the nation of Panem. The film finds Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) adjusting to life as victors following the events of the Hunger Games. But then theyre thrown back into the arena for the 75th annual games.
Check out a sampling of the lyrics from Atlas: Some saw the sun, Some saw the smoke, Some heard the gun, Some bent the bow. Sometimes the wise must tense for the note. Caught in the fire, say oh, we”re about to explode. Carry your world. I”ll carry your world.
The song was recorded at Coldplay”s Beehive studio in London. The sequel to The Hunger Games hits theaters Nov. 22. A release date for the accompanying soundtrack hasnt been announced just yet.
