The odds are certainly in Coldplay’s favor. It has been announced that the band will contribute an original song called “Atlas” to the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Earlier today (August 9), the band posted a photo of the handwritten lyrics of the song, due out August 26, on their website. Very fittingly they sing about being “caught in the fire.” But being the sweet and sensitive band they are, the song also has lyrics like: “I’ll carry your world…and all your hurt.”

This is the first song Coldplay has ever written specifically for a motion picture. It’s also the band’s first new song since releasing their fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto in 2011.

As of now, there is no release date or official tracklist for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. The first Hunger Games soundtrack featured artists like Taylor Swift, Arcade Fire, The Civil Wars, Maroon 5, Miranda Lambert and Kid Cudi.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters November 22.
