'Catching Fire' Song: 'Lean' by The National


Share



The National sound restrained and somber on "Lean," their new contribution to the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. The band builds a moody texture of acoustic guitars and, later, violin embellishments as frontman Matt Berninger portends doom with lyrics like, "Everybody needs a prayer and needs a friend/Everybody knows the world's about to end." Throughout the song's four minutes, though, the band barely break a sweat, keeping their cool even as Berninger coos "Dying is easy" in the chorus.


The soundtrack will be released on November 19th. In addition to the National, it features songs by Christina Aguilera, Patti Smith, Sia, Lorde, Antony & the Johnsons, Santigold and more. The Catching Fire song "Atlas," by Coldplay, recently won the Hollywood Song Award from the Hollywood Film Awards.
