World Exclusive: The Lumineers - "Gale Song" (Live)
It's not every day you get to use the phrase "world exclusive", but that's truly what The Lumineers were cool enough to suprise us with during our complete broadcast of their live set at Marymoor Park last Saturday. While initially it went unknown whether the song debuted in their encore was to be featured on their new album or was simply a something the band had drummed up while on tour, we can now confirm the track will appear on the forthcoming Hunger Games:Catching Fire soundtrack alongside The National, Coldplay, and Imagine Dragons, announced today. Bearing the title "Gale Song" the tune is a fragile and soft, slow builder which grows to an immense emotional peak before settling once again. If it's any indication of The Lumineers direction, the band are certianly set reprise themselves with one of the most heartfelt records of the year. Pick up the studio version on November 19th when the soundtrack drops, but for now enjoy the live rendition below.
