The Weeknd Debuts ‘Devil May Cry’ Off ‘Catching Fire’ Soundtrack

Catching Fire
Universal Republic

One of the most anticipated movies of the year’s is ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ the sequel to last year’s popular theatrical adaptation of the novel. If it’s anything like the first installment, it’s going to be a pretty emotional flick. So it’s understandable that moody R&B crooner The Weeknd is a contributor for the film’s soundtrack.

‘Devil May Cry’ finds The Weeknd singing over an acoustic guitar before backing vocals join him for the chorus. The sound gives way to a more epic, grander atmosphere that mixes in what sounds like an electric guitar, thumping percussion and a heavy, underlying synth.

The new Weeknd cut is also the longest on the ‘Catching Fire’ soundtrack at over five minutes. It’s clear he’s not really aiming for the radio with this track. “It won’t be in vain / To swallow all your pain / And learn to love what burns / And gather courage to return,” he sings.

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ soundtrack will also feature contributions from 17-year-old pop wunderkund Lorde, Christina Aguilera, Santigold and plenty others.

The star-studded soundtrack officially hits stores Nov. 19, while the movie hits theaters Nov. 22.
