Massive songstress Lorde has curated the soundtrack for the upcoming motion picture The Hunger Games – Mockingjay: Part 1, and today we hear a rework of the soundtrack's lead single from an unlikely source.
The production team brought on Kanye West to deliver a unique modification to “Yellow Flicker Beat”, shortened to “Flicker”. The lack of rapping from Kanye shouldn’t come as a surprise since he was initially recognized as a producer, and still plays a strong role in the production of his own material. This “rework” of the song adds the right amount of dark, spacey influence to change up the original, and draws some definite parallels from his Yeezus album.
Anyone else blown away at the fact this collaboration happened? Enjoy.
