The soundtrack for the highly anticipated Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is being curated by Lorde, which is both a curious and incredibly promising thing.

And while we’re still entirely in the dark about which acts the “Royals” songstress has enlisted to provide tracks for the forthcoming collection, we now know that her own contribution is coming to us next week.

“Yellow Flicker Beat” will be released on September 29, produced by the prolific Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence + The Machine). The song, which will reportedly be played during the closing credits of the film, is also the first taste of new music from Lorde since the release of Pure Heroine.

The singer also unveiled the cover art for the forthcoming single, as well as the opening line (“I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a stone…”) on Instagram.
