Pop star Lorde has landed the honor of curating the album soundtrack for The Hunger Games movie sequel.

The Royals hitmaker will hand pick the artists she wants to appear on the accompanying musical project for director Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and the teen will also provide the first single from the disc.

She says, "Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance. The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people."

The soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, will be released this fall, ahead of the film's premiere in November.
