Coldplay: New single featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack

Coldplay’s new single, “Atlas”, will be featured on the official soundtrack for the forthcoming film, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

The song will be available via iTunes and all digital retailers on August 26, ahead of the film’s release on November 22.

"I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film," said Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence. "Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can't wait to share this music with audiences around the world."

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin shared the lyrics to the new song by posting an image (above) of a handwritten sheet with them on both Facebook and Twitter.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is the second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy.

“Atlas” is the first new music from Coldplay since the release of their 2011 album, “Mylo Xyloto”.
