The Weeknd has contributed an original song for one of this year’s most anticipated films, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters later this month.
The singer has recorded a mid-tempo song called “Devil May Cry” for the film’s soundtrack. “I wanted to go for an uplifting and conquering yet melancholy mood,” The Weeknd explained during Twitter Q&A with iTunes. He also revealed that producer Rick Rubin “helped me bring it to life.”
The Weeknd joins Christina Aguilera, Lorde, Coldplay, Santigold and many others for the upcoming soundtrack, which will be available on November 19. Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits the big screen on November 22.
