Olivia Rodrigo continues her pervasive presence with the release of a music video for her compelling track, “Can’t Catch Me Now,” featured in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. Unveiled on Monday (Nov. 13), the visual narrative unfolds as Rodrigo departs from a quaint cottage, traversing through a field while vocalizing her omnipresence in another’s life. In the chorus, she poignantly asserts, “But I’m in the trees, I’m in the breeze / My footsteps on the ground / You’ll see my face in every place / But you can’t catch me now.”
Released earlier this month, “Can’t Catch Me Now” serves as the inaugural piece on the 17-song film soundtrack set to release on November 17 via Geffen Records, coinciding with the theatrical debut of The Hunger Games film. The soundtrack not only features Rodrigo’s contribution but also showcases performances by The Hunger Games star Rachel Zegler, alongside offerings from emerging talents in the folk/Americana genre.
The forthcoming movie stars Zegler in a prominent role alongside a cast including Tom Blyth, Peter Dinklage, Hunter Schafer, Josh Andrés Rivera, Jason Schwartzman, and Viola Davis. The narrative revolves around Coriolanus (Blyth), the last hope for the Snow family, a lineage that has plummeted from grace in the aftermath of war within the Capitol.
