We’re getting lots of Lorde news today. After ripping Diplo a new one, she stopped by the BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge to talk about the upcoming soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I.

After singing “Yellow Flicker Beat,” Lorde decided to grace the listeners with a cover of Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em.” She said, “I’ve been a really big fan of this song since I first started hearing it round, I really love the vocal melodies. I think they’re just really smart, and just considered and cool. And obviously it’s quite a saucy song, so I thought it would be interesting to flip the dynamic and make that power mine.”

Another song was released off The Hunger Games upcoming soundtrack today as well. The mysterious “Track 5” has now been revealed as Ariana Grande’sAll My Love” featuring Major Lazer.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack is out on 11/18 via Republic.
