Olivia Rodrigo is musically joining the Hunger Games universe. The pop superstar announced on Wednesday (Nov. 1) that she wrote a song called “Can’t Catch Me Now” for the upcoming The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (Music From & Inspired By) soundtrack.
“Soooo beyond excited that I got the opportunity to write a song for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes,” Rodrigo wrote on Instagram alongside a trailer of the film, in which you can hear the singer’s soaring harmonies over the clip. See the post.
“Can’t Catch Me Now” is available for pre-orderleading up to its release on Nov. 3, and will serve as the opening track to the 17-song album due out November 17 via Geffen Records, which is also the date the Hunger Games film hits theaters. The soundtrack includes songs performed in the film by The Hunger Games star Rachel Zegler, as well as tracks by young artists in the folk/Americana genre.
The upcoming movie stars Zegler alongside Tom Blyth, Peter Dinklage, Hunter Schafer, Josh Andrés Rivera, Jason Schwartzman and Viola Davis, and follows the story of Coriolanus (Blyth), who is the last hope for his failing lineage, the Snow family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol.
