While most 17-year-olds are still thumbing through the pages of the Hunger Games book series before Mockingjay – Part 1 hits the big screen this fall, Lorde is doing a little more than that.

The New Zealand singer lent her vocals to Hunger Games: Catching Fire last year, and this year the “Royal” songstress is upping the ante. Lionsgate reported that Lorde will be assembling the entire soundtrack for Mockingjay – Part 1, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As director Francis Lawrence puts it, “Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay’s characters and themes not only have enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assemble the other songs on our soundtrack.”

The third installment of the Hunger Games series hits theaters on November 21.
