Lionsgate Films has appointed Lorde as director of the soundtrack for the new Hunger Games: Our Leader The MockingJay

The 17-year-old "Royals" singer will not only select the artists who will appear on the soundtrack, she will also write and lend her vocals on the first single.

Lionsgate, Republic Records and Songs Music Publishing revealed Lorde's involvement in the franchise on Thursday, just days after releasing the first official Mockingjay trailer.
