¡®Atlas¡¯ will be the first song from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack and it also marks the first time that Coldplay have recorded a song for a film, alongside Arcade Fire and Taylor Swift who also feature on the soundtrack.
¡°I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film,¡± said director Francis Lawrence.
¡°Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can¡¯t wait to share this music with audiences around the world.¡±
It is the second film in The Hunger Games film trilogy and will be released worldwide on the 22nd of November. This is the second time that Coldplay have made the move on the screen with drummer Will Champion making a cameo appearance in the hit HBO series Game Of Thrones, as unsurprisingly a drummer in a wild banquet scene.
On more Coldplay related news, rumors are out that the band are working on their sixth album, following the success of their last LP, ¡®Mylo Xyloto¡®, selling over eight million copies worldwide.
