Lorde‘s soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 now has 100 percent more Yeezy. The recent South Park spoof subject previously shared her own “Yellow Flicker Beat” from the album, and yesterday brought “This Is Not a Game,” the Pure Heroine singer/songwriter’s collaboration with the Chemical Brothers and MigueliTunes has shared the full tracklist overnight (via Pitchfork), and it includes a Kanye West reworking of Lorde as part of a fairly stacked lineup.

West has redone a Lorde song titled “Flicker,” which as Billboard notes may simply refer to the soundtrack’s “Yellow Flicker Beat.”  Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and HAIM all appear on a track by Belgium’s Stromae. Charli XCX has a song with a guest listed as Simon Bon; Rolling Stone and Pitchfork both now confirm it’s actually Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon. Lorde has another song on the album, titled “Ladder Song”; Pitchfork reports it’s a Bright Eyes cover, originally from 2011′s The People’s Key. One track’s artist and title have still yet to be revealed. Bat for Lashes, Grace JonesTinashé and CHVRCHES are among others contributing.

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde said in a July press release. “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.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 will be in U.S. theaters on November 21. The soundtrack is set for release earlier that week, on November 17. You can listen to “Yellow Flicker Beat” below, and scroll down for the cover art and tracklist.
