The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters November 22 and with an original soundtrack full of heavy-hitters. The first taste of it came with Coldplay’s star-gazing “Atlas” and now we have a collaborative track from an impressive trio. “Elastic Heart” unites “Diamonds” writer SiaKiss Land R&Bist the Weeknd, and Major Lazer main brain Diplo under the roof of a single bubbling ballad that, yes, feels aptly cinematic.

With lyrics about biting the dust, trusting no one, and conquering love, the song also seems like a perfect fit for this particular film franchise. Abel Tesfaye’s falsetto cooing sounds particularly strong here, and though Diplo’s typical technicolor touch can’t exactly be felt, it’s worth noting the subtle touch he’s applied to some of his own works like “Get Free.” Enjoy that below, and check the Catching Fire track list beneath.
