Listen to Coldplay's 'Atlas' from 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire'

coldplay-atlasIt was revealed last month that Coldplay had recorded a song for the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire titled "Atlas" and now the song is available online (via in full and can be listened to directly below.

I can only assume this is the first high profile group to contribute to the upcoming soundtrack as the first film had the likes of Arcade Fire, Taylor Swift, Kid Cudi and Maroon 5. However, any additional artists have yet to be announced so this is what you get for now.

In addition to the announcement, the band also released the song's lyrics, which I included just below the video. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters on November 22.

Coldplay Atlas Lyrics

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

    Not bad, but Coldplay's done much better

  • Hudsucker

    I liked it for the most part, but they've done better.

    i think this guys voice is just horrible, couldn't listen to the whole thing.

    • Hudsucker

      Really, his voice is different, but not unbearable. You probably wouldn't be able to stand Captain Beefheart if you can't make it through a Coldplay song.

  • Django

    I love it. The chord progression on the verses is lush. Not their best song but a nice effort and i imagine it goes with the song very well.

    • Django

      *goes with the movie

  • kash

    starts of pretty slow and bland, but the chorus sounds brilliant.

  • Ducard

    This is easily the best tune I've heard from this band in a long time. I'd about given up on this band that I once thought was going to take U2's torch, but this song recalls that almost forgotten band.
    99% of music vids suck (I'd rather play the vid in my head instead), but this one is pretty cool.
