News - Coldplay Release 'Atlas'

Coldplay is proud to announce the release of their brand new song, “Atlas”.

The track will be included on the soundtrack of “Catching Fire”, the “Hunger Game” trilogy’s second movie. The song was recorded exclusively for the film and it will not be included on Coldplay's next album.

It seems that Chris Martin is the one that wrote the song’s lyrics, for he is a huge fan of the The Hunger Games books.

'We are so honored that Coldplay, one of the iconic rock bands of our generation, will perform the first song out on the new soundtrack,' gushed Tracy McKnight of Lionsgate said in a statement. 'Knowing that Chris Martin is a fan of the books makes this even more meaningful. The Coldplay single underscores the stature of recording artists we've assembled for this powerful soundtrack.'

The soundtrack to the first movie features music by The Arcade Fire and Taylor Swift.
