Coldplay has officially released “Atlas,” a song made specifically for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The four minute track was released Friday, Rumor Fix reports, showing off streams of color and the lyrics to the song as the British band sings in the background.
News that the Grammy Award winning band would record a track for the highly anticipated sequel surfaced in early August. The song was praised by director Francis Lawrence for “how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film.”
Coldplay excitedly announced the news on Twitter, also showcasing some of the lyrics.
As Rumor Fix notes, this is the first time the band has recorded an original track specifically for a film. This is also their first new single since 2011.
The Hunger Games, the first film, had another Grammy Award winning artist on the first soundtrack. Taylor Swift famously recorded “Safe and Sound” for the breakout film, which was released in 2012.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters Nov. 22.
