Grace Jones - Original Beast

Lorde is basically friends with all the cool people.  And by cool people, I mean all the musical legends and icons that you love.  First there was that picture of her casually hanging out with David Bowie and Tilda Swinton and now she's managed to get Grace Jones on the Lorde-curated Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack.  Let's not even talk about the fact that she chose to exclude a new David Lynch track from the album.

The new Grace song is called "Original Beast" and it's this insane electo-tribal attack.  Her vocals are eerie and savage, and it's pretty much the perfect Grace Jones contribution to a highly successful young adult novel-to-film adaptation that you never asked for.  What even is this world that we're living in?
