It’s been almost two years since Coldplay released their fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto, but the British rock band make a brief return with “Atlas“! The track is featured on the upcoming soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is scheduled for release in November. The delicate piano ballad seems to be an appropriate fit for the post-apocalyptic series, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson. “I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film,” said director Francis Lawrence in a press release. “Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can’t wait to share this music with audiences around the world.” Fans of the band should appreciate the cinematic number.. it sounds very much like a Coldplay song but it may not be their strongest offering.
