Ellie Goulding: Mirror
The soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hit shelves this past Tuesday, and as per usual with big motion picture soundtracks, it's got some big name musicians attached to it. From Diplo to Sia to Christina and even a bit of Lorde - they're all here. But deep in the the latter half of the album is an Ellie track that I've grown very fond of. Perhaps it's a tune for Halcyon that didn't quite make the cut - or perhaps it's a newly recorded specifically for Hunger Games. Regardless of it's origin it's quite the dazzling little number.
Production on the track was handled by Billboard, a man better known for birthing the out of this world dubby breakdown in Britney's Hold It Against Me and crafting glitter and liquor soaked bangers for Ke$ha
Anyway, it's always nice to hear these two come together. Last time they did we got that Hanging On cover and - oh man - that was a wonderful tune.
