Lorde performs on September 25, 2013, in Hollywood, California.

If you aren’t already super-pumped about the upcoming Hunger Games movie (though admit it, you definitely are), you’ve now got a reason. Lorde, the wunderkind best known for her chart-topping single “Royals,” will be on the movie’s soundtrack with her cover of the 1985 Tears for Fears hit “Everybody Wants To Rule The World.”

The New Zealand native, who just turned 17, put a modern, dark and gorgeously haunting twist on the classic  song — you can totally imagine it playing as Katniss battles her many foes in an epic combat montage. Listen to a preview of it here, and look out for it when you see Catching Fire, in theaters Nov. 22.

Meh. You've got to be spot on when remaking a classic. The music overshadows a questionable vocal performance.
