Fresh from the unveiling of the lead song from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 this week, we’re now hearing that Lorde has enlisted Diplo, Charli XCX and more to create songs for the soundtrack.

She’s also reportedly asked Grace Jones and Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran to contribute music for the film, which comes out on 20 November.

Lorde’s own song Yellow Flicker Beat is currently the only confirmed song on the soundtrack, although she’s reportedly been in the studio with Kanye West of late, and rumours are swirling that one of the tracks could end up on the soundtrack, too.

Lorde’s pal Taylor Swift was actually the first person to hear Yellow Flicker Beat, revealed via Instagram when Lorde described how the pair regularly dance around the kitchen with their friends to each other’s music. Stars: they’re just like us!

In other Lorde news, she’s just been parodied on South Park! However, instead of making fun of the singer, the skit really takes the piss out of a few different types of people. We narrowed it down here.
