One is an 18-year-old pop star from New Zealand, the other a 37-year-old rapper from Chicago, yet Lorde and Kanye West are more than just fans of one another — they’re also collaborators. After covering songs like “Flashing Lights” and “Hold My Liquor” in concert, Lorde recently enlisted Yeezus to contribute to the soundtrack to The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt. 1, of which she is curating. Kanye obliged with a dark and brooding remix of Lorde’s latest single, “Yellow Flicker Beat”. Listen below.

The Hunger Games soundtrack is out November 17th and also includes contributions from HAIM, Bat For Lashes, CHVRCHES (“Dead Air”), Charli XCX, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and Raury. See the full tracklist below. Pre-orders are ongoing.
