Lionsgate and Republic Records have added tracks from Brazilian rockers CPM22, Berlin-based ABBY and Spanish alternative band Lori Meyers to local versions of soundtrack album for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
The soundtrack featuring ABBY’s song “Again” will be available Nov. 15 in Germany and Austria. The album featuring Lori Meyers’ song “Hombre a Tierra” will be available Nov. 18 in Spain, Central America and South America and the version featuring CPM22, with the track “13,” will be available in Brazil only on Nov. 18.
Each song will also play during the end credits of the film when it comes to theatres in their respective regions.
“Beginning with the worldwide campaign kickoff of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in Cannes this past May, we made a promise to work closely with our international partners in order to create a truly global event for this release,” said Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. “Adding these highly successful artists, who are each beloved in their local territories, is yet another big step toward achieving that goal.”
The soundtrack includes songs from Coldplay, Patti Smith, Christina Aguilera, The Lumineers, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, and Sia. Coldplay’s “Atlas” debuted in first on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart and marks the first-ever motion picture soundtrack contribution written and recorded by Coldplay.
The soundtrack will be available in stores and through all digital retailers starting on Nov. 19 in the U.S., three days before the film opens worldwide.
