On the heels of The Chemical Brothers debuting their song from the Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack today on BBC Radio 1 (listen to it here, via directlyrics), the Lorde-curated companion album has unveiled its (nearly) full tracklist today as pre-orders go live on the UK iTunes Store (UPDATE: and US too!) today (Tuesday, October 21). The album will be released digitally worldwide on November 17, and Yellow Flicker Beat and This Is Not A Game are available to purchase right now. Check out the full tracklist below:

5. Track 5 - Various Artists 0:06
6. Lost Souls - Raury 2:53

We are definitely intrigued by the yet-unannounced placeholder track 5...maybe The Lumineers' and Jen Lawrence's rendition of The Hanging Tree?
The release of the tracklist & pre-orders fits in with the information from UMG we reported on a few days ago that the tracklist was to be revealed on October 21. We expect a full press release from UMG/Republic and Lionsgate with pre-order details and hopefully more info such as regarding the delayed Yellow Flicker Beat music video later on, likely at the usual time of 9am PT/noon ET on Tuesday.
What do you think of the announcement and of the artists on the album? Let us know!
