Coldplay quietly released a brand new song today. 'Atlas'
will be included on the soundtrack to Hunger Games 2, reports music-news.com.
The song was recorded for the movie and is not planned to be included on
Coldplay's next album. 'Atlas' features the lyrics 'caught in the fire, say oh'
suggesting that Chris Martin wrote the song specifically for the movie. The
full title of the film is 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. Martin is a fan of
The Hunger Games books. 'We are so honoured that Coldplay, one of the iconic
rock bands of our generation, will perform the first song out on the new
soundtrack,' said Tracy McKnight of Lionsgate said in a statement. 'Knowing
that Chris Martin is a fan of the books makes this even more meaningful. The
Coldplay single underscores the stature of recording artists we've assembled
for this powerful soundtrack.' The soundtrack to the first movie features music
by The Arcade Fire and Taylor Swift.
