17-year-old pop singer Lorde has followed up her chart-topping first single, "Royals," with a cover of the classic Number One hit, "Everybody Wants To Rule The World." The original by Tears For Fears was written and recorded in 1985, a full 11 years before Lorde was born. The New Zealand-born artist recorded her version for the soundtrack of the upcoming movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which comes out next Tuesday (November 19th).

  • The soundtrack also features new songs by Christina Aguilera, the National and Coldplay, among others. Coldplay's "Atlas" was the first song that the British supergroup has ever written specifically for a film.
  • Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, has had the Number One single on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks now with "Royals," which was also recently named the longest-running chart-topping single by a female musician on the Modern Rock chart.
  • Her debut album Pure Heroine sold 129,000 copies in its first week to debut at Number Three on the Billboard 200 album chart last month.
