The tracklist for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack has been revealed and it features a few well-known artists alongside some familiar up-and-comers.

The soundtrack–out November 19–includes original songs from Of Monsters and Men, Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers, Ellie Goulding, and Patti Smith.

Lorde covers Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” for the album. While The Weeknd  appears on two songs: his own track, “Devil May Cry” and Sia’s song, “Elastic Heart,” which also features Diplo.

Christina Aguilera tweeted earlier today (September 26) that she was on the soundtrack, telling her fans: “Love is the underlying message of @TheHungerGames. “We Remain” is special new song, its message to my fans & how I connect w/ the movie, alike.”

From the sounds of the 90-second snippet (via Rolling Stone), it’s clear Aguilera’s channeling her “Beautiful” days with the ballad that musters up a few confidence boosting lines.

Coldplay contribution to the soundtrack, “Atlas,” was released earlier this month. It’s the first song  the band has ever written specifically for a motion picture and their first new song since releasing their fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto in 2011.

 

Matt Berninger from The National also spilled the beans about their Hunger Games song, “Lean,” telling NME earlier this week that the song, which was originally called “Dying Is Easy,” was almost scrapped by the soundtrack’s producers because it was too dark. Something Berninger thought was rather funny being that the movie is about killing kids. “I don’t know how a song can be darker than that,” he told the magazine.

In the end though, it all worked out.

“It was a really fun project…It was a cool change from how we normally work on things – to write something for something else,” Berninger said. “It was kind of a pressure release thing and it was fun, we really enjoyed it.”

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters November 22.
