What was previously just speculation based off a soon deleted blog post by a recording studio in North Carolina is now confirmation from the man himself: Jennifer Lawrence recorded ‘Rue’s Lullaby’ for the Hunger Games soundtrack! MTV spoke with Burnett at the recent Big Lebowski reunion in New York City and he not only informed them that she sang it, but that it’ll be ready for release soon!
“Yeah, we did that. We recorded that,” Burnett said about “Rue’s Lullaby.” “And it’ll be coming out soon.”
While Burnett and Elfman are ready to release Lawrence’s recording, the two Grammy winners are only just getting started on their “Hunger Games” work. What they have planned has blown Burnett away. “It’s 300 years in the future, so we can take all sorts of liberties,” Burnett said of the story. “[Elfman's] got an incredible space he’s put together. It’s the most incredible studio I’ve ever seen and he’s got drums and marimbas and a cimbalom — just crazy instruments everywhere. We’re just going to go over there and rock out. I think we’re just going to play together. We’re going to do it together.”
