While performing a concert at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Wash. last week, The Lumineers debuted their ballad “Gale Song” for fans, a track that was recently announced to be part of the upcoming Hunger Games‘ sequel’s soundtrack.
The song’s title refers to Liam Hemsworth‘s Hunger Games character Gale Hawthorne. The lyrics of the song seem to allude to the complicated relationship between Gale and Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) when it comes to their romantic feels for each other.
“I was ten thousand miles away, so when you hear my voice, when you say my name,” singer Wesley Schultz sings in a video of the performance. “But I don’t’ want to go but it’s time to leave. You’ll be on my mind, my destiny. ”
He sings, “And there was time when I stood in line for love, for love, for love. But I let you go, I let you go.”
The band tweeted about the exciting Catching Fire song this week, writing, “Hey all, our brand new track ‘Gale Song’ is on @TheHungerGames #CatchingFire Soundtrack out 11/19. Pre-Order now.”
Catching Fire stars Lawrence and Hemsworth recently touched down in Atlanta to begin filming the third and fourth installments of the franchise, Mockingjay.
