There it is: The second song from “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” soundtrack has arrived. Called “This Is Not A Game,” the track comes from The Chemical Brothers and features vocals by Miguel, with Lorde — who curated the “Mockingjay” album — contributing a spoken-word recitation of the phrase “there it is” throughout. Sings Miguel, with lyrics that would make Olivia Pope proud: “Patience and determination/ staring at a gladiator/ talking ’bout a revolution.” Residents of Shondaland, here is your national anthem.
