If there’s one thing both Lorde and Kanye West do well, it’s Dark And Brooding. So call it a stroke of genius that West was enlisted to remix — or, ahem, Rework — the Grammy-winning Kiwi’s Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 soundtrack single “Yellow Flicker Beat.” Here stripped bare of any pop flourishes, the song plays like an ominous film score piece, which, you know, is pretty apropos.

Fanatic followers of both may find this new version of the song falling somewhere between a religious experience and just sort of creepy. Head below to give a listen and see what you think.
