In the wake of yesterday’s announcement that Coldplay will contribute a song to the Catching Fire soundtrack, MTV listed a few artists they would like to see on the soundtrack: MS MR, Imagine Dragons, and Mumford & Sons. This got me thinking: who do I want to see on the album?
I give a HUGE thumbs up to suggestion of MS MR, who have been on my soundtrack wishlist for a while now, their song “Hurricane” has influenced this decision quite a bit. They will kick off my wishlist, which will be brief. Please note: artists listed in no particular order!
I would also LOVE to see Arcade Fire come back with a song for Catching Fire. Not only do I think it would be nice to have one artist on both albums to tie them together, I also think Arcade Fire is an amazing band.
Another artist who has long been on my wishlist is The xx. I love their music and I think their haunting vibe would make a great addition to the album.
And last, but not least, an artist I literally discovered yesterday, Bat for Lashes. They also have some haunting melodies and I believe they could contribute positively to the soundtrack.
OK, so there’s that! Let us know who you would like to see make a contribution on the soundtrack. Any particular artist from The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond that you would like to see return? We’d love to know what you think!
