Lorde answered some questions about the 'Mockingjay' soundtrack on Twitter

In case you hadn’t heard, Lorde curated the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, which is this small indie film about a girl who plays with her food and has birds for pets. And because Lorde has started releasing a few of the songs from the upcoming film, she decided it was time for a Twitter Q&A with her fans.

Here’s what we learned:

Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, more collaborate for 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'

In 1984, musicians like Bono and Phil Collins got together to sing “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” as one unit: Band Aid. Bob Geldof and Midge Ure wrote the song to raise money for relief efforts going toward the Ethiopia famine, and now, 30 years later, big-time musicians are collaborating on the song once again—this time to fight Ebola as Band Aid 30.

Ice-T rapped on a punk version of 'Turn Down for What'

In case DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s original version of “Turn Down for What” wasn’t enough, there’s now a punk version of the 2013 song—and it features Ice-T.

The track appears on Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6, the sixth in a series of albums where punk bands cover radio hits like Lorde’s “Royals” and Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” But Upon a Burning Body, the band who covers “Turn Down for What” on the album, is more metal than punk—and Ice-T’s aggressive rapping fits in nicely with the band’s throaty yells.

Ariana Grande somehow sneaks a club jam onto the 'Mockingjay' soundtrack

First, Lorde releases a cover of Bright Eyes’ “Ladder Song,” and now, on a very different note, Ariana Grande has added a dance track to the Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 soundtrack.

The song, titled “All My Love” pairs Grande with Major Lazer for an upbeat song that doesn’t quite fit with the tempo of the rest of what’s been released from the Mockingjay soundtrack. Unless Katniss finds herself in a dance club at any point, there’s a good chance this song could be more of a credits-sequence deal. Then again, who said District 13 doesn’t know how to party? Oh, that’s right—everyone.

Lorde covers Bright Eyes in new, very emotional 'Mockingjay' song

In a new song from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde covers Bright Eyes’ “Ladder Song.” The slow jam sets a fairly melancholy mood with talk of traitors and people who used to be “friends of mine.”

With that in mind, the song could very easily lend itself to a Katniss-Peeta moment, among other options. Regardless, based on the song’s tempo, the odds are definitely in favor of the moment being an emotional one. (Read: Expect tears.)
