Coldplay Atlas


Coldplay is paying deft tribute to Jennifer Lawrence's champion Tribute.

The rockers have unveiled the cover art for their new tune, "Atlas," which is featured on the upcoming soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

And Chris Martin & Co., who posted the image on Coldplay's Twitter feed, made sure to give the flick's fierce protagonist, Katniss, a suitably heroic glam shot.

In it, Lawrence's scrappy heroine—one of several young Tributes pitted against each other in a brutal and televised battle to the death—stands atop a rock formation while staring out on the horizon, huge swirls of clouds flanking her. In her hand: the trusty bow and arrow that will ensure her survival.

"Atlas" will be the first new music from Coldplay since 2011, when they released their chart-busting album Mylo Xyloto. And it will also mark the first tune that the band has written for a feature film.

The soundtrack is set to hit stores on Aug. 26, three months before the movie itself arrives in theaters. The album follows in the footsteps of the first film's buzzy soundtrack, which featured songs by Taylor Swift, Arcade Fire and The Civil Wars, among others.

Expectations are running high for Catching Fire, following The Hunger Games' massive $686 million worldwide gross. The highly anticipated sequel features a bevy of new faces, including Sam Claflin, Jenna Malone and Amanda Plummer.

Catching Fire lands in theaters on Nov. 22.
