Christina Aguilera Reveals 'Catching Fire' Song
Christina Aguilera will be on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
Titled "We Remain," the track joins the previously released, sweeping piano ballad "Atlas," written and performed specifically for the follow-up by British band Coldplay, as well as The National's "Lean."
The Voice coach made the announcement via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, tweeting to her more than 9.4 million followers the news: "Love the underlying message of @TheHungerGames. 'We Remain' is special new song, its message to my fans & how I connect w/ the movie, alike."
Aguilera's last album was 2012's Lotus and she has been a featured artist on several songs, including Pitbull's "Feel This Moment," released earlier this year. After taking the fourth cycle of The Voice off, the singer returned to NBC's singing competition series Sept. 23.
In Catching Fire, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) adjust to life as Hunger Games victors, until they are thrown back into the arena for the 75th annual Games -- the Quarter Quell. Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci and Woody Harrelson reprise their roles in the second film of the franchise, while Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Jeffrey Wright join the cast.
Catching Fire hits theaters Nov. 22. A release date for the accompanying soundtrack, to be distributed by Lionsgate and Republic Records, has not yet been announced.
