Listen to the track here.

The Royals star not only recorded a single for the film, she also hand-picked the songs for the soundtrack. 

She said: "Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance.

"The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will be released in cinemas on November 21.
