Olivia Rodrigo writes ‘Can’t Catch Me Now’ for ‘The Hunger Games’

Almost two months after the release of ‘GUTS’, Olivia Rodrigo is back at it with a new project: her original song for the soundtrack of the new ‘Hunger Games’ movie. It is titled ‘Can’t Catch Me Now’ and is now available on all music platforms.

The saga of ‘The Hunger Games’ will continue with a new installment on November 17, with the premiere of ‘Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ in all cinemas around the world. And Olivia Rodrigo wanted to be part of her soundtrack with the song ‘Ca n’t Catch Me Now’, which she wrote with producer Daniel Nigro exclusively for the film.

Daniel Nigro is Olivia Rodrigo’s trusted collaborator. In fact, he is the main producer of her two albums released to date: ‘SOUR’ and ‘GUTS’. For this song, the artist moves away from the pop-rock that characterized her second album and turns to her first sounds, more in line with songs like ‘enough for you’ or ‘favorite crime’.

Furthermore, ‘Can’t Catch Me Now’, which has a very somber aura in line with the franchise’s music, is also reminiscent of ‘Safe & Sound’, a song that Taylor Swift wrote just a decade ago for the first film. the saga. Her guitar chords manage to highlight the more alt-country side of her.

The ‘Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ soundtrack will feature up to 17 songs, including Rachel Zegler, Molly Tuttle, Billy Strings, Sierra Ferrell, Flatland Cavalry, Bella White and Charles Wesley Godwin. It will be released, along with the film, on November 17.
