First listen: Kanye West remixes Lorde (+audio)

THEY'VE been rumoured to be working together for ages.  

Now, the first efforts from a Lorde-Kanye West collaboration has been released, with the rapper's remix of the pop star's Hunger Games theme being posted online.  

West remixed Lorde's Yellow Flicker Beat, turning it into a grimy, downbeat trap song, for her Mockingjay part one soundtrack.  

Called Flicker, the track has been praised since being posted on YouTube.  

"This gave me shivers?," wrote one listener.  

Due for release on Friday, Lorde's soundtrack also includes songs by The Chemical Brothers, Chvrches, Pusha T, Q-Tip, Haim and Arianda Grande.
