Lorde celebrates 18th birthday with video for “Yellow Flicker Beat” — watch

Lorde Yellow Flicker Beat

Lorde has unveiled the video for “Yellow Flicker Beat”, her contribution to the upcoming soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (of which she also curated). Under the direction of Emily Kai Bock, Lorde sings the song and dances (awkwardly) in a variety of different locations, including a motel room, the middle of an abandoned highway, and a luxurious party. At each spot, she dons a vastly different style. Watch.

The video arrives on the singer’s 18th birthday. From all of us at CoS, feliz cumpleaños, Ella!

The Mockingjay soundtrack is due out November 17th via Lionsgate Music. Lorde also teams with Miguel and the Chemical Brothers for a track titled “This Is Not A Game”, with additional contributions from Kanye West, CHVRCHES (“Dead Air”), Bat for Lashes, Charli XCX, Pusha T, and HAIM, among others.
