Coldplay’s “Atlas” Debuting on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack

The first Hunger Games soundtrack snagged Grammy-nominated contributions from some of music’s heaviest hitters. Now it’s looking like the sequel may be just as big: Coldplay announced that they’ll be debuting a new song on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The song is called “Atlas.” Here’s a page with its scribbled lyrics, courtesy of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin:
