With the upcoming premiere of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, the film’s soundtrack has been unveiled, including a song by the talented and popular Olivia Rodrigo. She became widely famous after her acting and singing performances in the Disney+ series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, which led to her current success in the music industry.
Like the initial Hunger Games series, which featured songs from renowned artists such as Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound,” it’s no surprise that Olivia Rodrigo will contribute her music to the prequel. The singer announced on her Twitter page that her song “Can’t Catch Me Now” will be featured in the film, which debuts in theaters on November 17.
The soundtrack, accessible from November 3 on digital platforms, also presents a new rendition of “The Hanging Tree”—a well-known song amongst franchise fans. Jennifer Lawrence’s character, Katniss Everdeen, sings this piece, which turns into a symbol of the Districts’ rebellion against the Capitol. In The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, the origin of this song is revealed, as it’s written and sung by Rachel Zegler’s character, Lucy Gray Baird.
Additional cast members in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes include Tom Blyth as Coriolanus Snow, Peter Dinklage as Dean Casca Highbottom, Viola Davis as Head Gamemaker Volumnia Gaul, and Hunter Schafer as Tigris. Watch the trailer below:
