It has been two years since we have heard anything new from Coldplay. Last week, the band released a video for a song that will appear in the new Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire. “Atlas” was written specifically for the movie and weaves together the story of Katniss, her bow and arrow, and the Hunger Games. It is the first song confirmed on the official Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. No other artists have been announced yet.
The video is a visual delight that reminds me of a super high-tech screen saver. The words of the song dance across the screen as we sweep through various constellations chasing a star, an arrow, and words. It’s familiar Coldplay, with a similar building melody of the band’s beautifully done 2002 “Clocks.”
What do you think about the new song? Do you think it works with the tone of the novel, or do you think the arrow missed the mark?
