The multiplatinum Grammy-winning recording star (and Taylor Swift bestie) was thrilled when she was asked to hand-pick the artists on the soundtrack.

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde said in a press release.  “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.”
