There was a time not too long ago when Lorde made headlines for sharing one of her contributions to the upcoming film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Her song was great and everything fans had hoped the young singer would deliver, but she is not the only headline grabbing talent to have a new song featured on the highly-anticipated film’s soundtrack.

This morning, Scottish synth pop trio CHVRCHES shared a stream of a new song titled “Dead Air.” The song, which is also set to appear in Mockingjay Part 1, is everything you would expect from the group, with thick waves of synth intricately woven together to create a sonic ocean that the group navigates with the commanding vocals of Lauren Mayberry. Fans will be satisfied and newcomers will be weak in the knees. You can stream the song, in full, below:

The complete track listing for the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is as follows:

“Meltdown” – Stromae ft. Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip & Haim
“Dead Air” – CHVRCHES
“Scream My Name” – Tove Lo
“Kingdom” – Charli XCX ft. Simon Le Bon
“All My Love” – Major Lazer ft. Ariana Grande

This soundtrack was curated by Lorde, but you might have been able to figure that out given how frequently she appears in the track list. Only two of these songs have surfaced so far, but we’re confident more will debut online in the weeks ahead.
