The Weeknd‘s vivid pen game made him the perfect candidate to contribute to Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. Consider “Devil May Cry” to be the newest addition to the singer-songwriter’s growing cannon of emotional tunes.

Abel bares his heart and soul over hazy instrumentation that sporadically quiets to let in a spine-tingling guitar solo.

If you care to hear more new material from The Weekend, we suggest that you check out his major label release Kiss Land. You can also pre-order the film’s official soundtrack, due out November 19, here.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters November 22.
