Coldplay 'Atlas' (lyric video)
The makers of the upcoming film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have gotten a very high-profile soundtrack contributor in Coldplay, who penned a new song for the movie. A lyric video for that track has now hit the web.

"Atlas" is a dramatic piano ballad that finds Coldplay doing a very good job of sounding like Coldplay as they move from low-key verses to expansive, heart-lifting choruses, and conclude with a sweeping crescendo. The lyric video shows line drawings of what look like ancient depictions of gods, plus cosmic swirls of stars. The single is available to purchase on iTunes.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out in theatres on November 22.
