Words cannot even begin to describe how many feelings we have about Lorde's new song, "Yellow Flicker Beat," released today.
The "Royals" singer wrote the song as her addition to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 soundtrack. It's a perfect contribution for the movie's music, with dark, mysterious lyrics and a tune to match.
This amazing new single opens with Lorde's mesmerizing voice as she sings, "I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm and the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold." It sounds like Katniss herself is the voice behind the words!
The song is all about how there is a red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking in her heart—a perfect choice of words for a song all about a girl on fire! Last week, Lorde teased the song on her Instagram, posting pictures of different lyrics.
