We can't think of a 17-year-old — or anyone else at any age, really — more suited to curate The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack, than Lorde. The official announcement was made earlier today, and while the Kiwi singer hasn't revealed her handpicked tracks just yet, we do know that she'll provide the album's lead single.

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," Lorde said in a statement. "The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people."

Lorde's cover of Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants To Rule the World," was featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.

The latest installment of the franchise hits theaters November 21.
