Kanye West just added a little more swag to Lorde's "Yellow Flicker Beat."

Following the release of the Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 track in September, the rapper-producer made the song sound a bit more haunting with his rework, adding in echoes and a haunting piano melody halfway through it.

The "Bound 2" rapper didn't spit a verse on the song, which we thought might be a possibility after his name showed up on the soundtrack's track listing in October.

Back in September, Lorde wrote on her Tumblr that the song was inspired by Katniss, who Jennifer Lawrence plays in the film. "Now, about this song - yellow flicker beat. my first offering from what i hope will be a soundtrack you love. it's my attempt at getting inside her head, katniss'. i hope you like it," she wrote.

The full soundtrack will be released Nov. 18, while the film hits theaters Nov. 21.
