Olivia Rodrigo’s “Vampire,” her lead single from Guts that became her latest No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, naturally generated jokes related to The Twilight Saga film franchise. But now, Rodrigo is aligning with a different blockbuster franchise from the 2010s.

On Wednesday, November 1, Rodrigo confirmed that she wrote “Can’t Catch Me Now” for The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes. A snippet of the ethereal song can be heard in the prequel’s latest trailer. “Can’t Catch Me Now” will be released this Friday, November 3 ahead of The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes‘ November 17 theatrical release. Rodrigo previously teased her involvement with the soundtrack.

Per a press release, Rodrigo’s “Can’t Catch Me Now” is the opening track on The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (Music From & Inspired By), which will be released simultaneously with the movie. The soundtrack was executive produced by Dave Cobb and will feature songs by Rachel Zegler, Flatland Cavalry, Sierra Ferrell, Molly Tuttle, James Newton Howard, Bella White, The Covey Band, Billy Strings, Charles Wesley Godwin, and Josie Hope Hall.
