Almost 2 months since her second album release with “GUTS”, Olivia Rodrigo is back under the lights as one of the original singers in the “Hunger Games” official soundtrack.
The last November 3rd the song “Can’t catch me now” was uploaded on Olivia’s music profiles in all the apps. On the other side, the song was also uploaded on the official Hunger Games YouTube channel.
By the moment they have only released the audio. The fact that there is no music video or even a lyric one may be supposing that in the future Olivia might film it somewhere closer to the movie first release.
On the official soundtrack there are 17 songs with artists such as Bella White, Rachel Zegler or Sierra Ferrell. All of them will be uploaded when the movie gets out on November 17.
The film “Hunger Games: The ballad of songbirds and snakes” is back to the universe created by Suzanne Collins. This time is a prequel focused on Coriolanus Snow, the villain on the original trilogy. This movie is the 5th one based on this story but will be the first one without one of its most memorable characters: Katniss Everdeen.
The fans may miss some of the faces, like the Oscar winner Jenniffer Laurence or Liam Hemsworth. But the support that this universe gives to it makes it easy to have success on the cinemas all around the world.
Getting back to the song, Olivia Rodrigo steps out of the pop-rock vives she showed us on her last album “GUTS”. On this song, “Can’t catch me now” she offers us a more country style with a guitar ballad. This intimate sound remind us to the Taylor Swift song for the same saga “Safe and sound”, published for the first movie on 2012.
For this song Olivia has worked with her producer Daniel Nigro. She has worked with him on her both albums “GUTS” and “SOUR”, and this time they worked exclusively for the movie soundtrack song.
Olivia keeps successing since her debut with “Driver’s license” and has consolidated as one of the most listened female singers lately. After this movie song we can also expect big things on her career.
