On the heels of the release of the soundtrack for the upcoming follow-up to The Hunger Games, Lorde’s cover of Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” gets a listening preview. The “Royals” hit brings a dark and gloomy industrial sound to the ’80s poppy new wave single. Her gothic-like vocals hover over haunting percussion and synths.
The track will be available through the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack due out on November 22, 2013 via Republic Records.
