Watch: Lorde’s Enchanting Video for Hunger Games Song ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’
And the singer goes the full dark in ways she hasn’t before.
The songstress, who turns 18 tomorrow, starts off the video chanting as she sits alone in a darkened room, lit only by neon lights. From there, we’re taken on a journey by an elegant looking Lorde throughout the video. Her style is on point, and the locations are diverse and interesting; what could be better?
Although there’s nothing really Hunger Games related, “Yellow Flicker Beat” is a great track and a dreamy video.
On her Tumblr, Lorde wrote, “it’s my first offering from what i hope will be a soundtrack you love. it’s my attempt at getting inside her head, katniss’. i hope you like it.”
“Yellow Flicker Beat” is the first of Lorde’s songs off the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I soundtrack (which Lorde is also curating). It will also feature Charli XCX, the Chemical Brothers, Kanye West, Grace Jones, Ariana Grande and Tinashe.
Mockingjay Part I comes out in theaters on November 21st.
