  • Wesley Schultz's interest in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy was aroused by a Mockingjay pin that Patti Smith was wearing at Clive Davis' pre-Grammys party. The Lumineers vocalist started reading the books and penned this fragile slow builder about protagonist Katniss Everdeen's best friend and hunting partner Gale Hawthorne, who is also a romantic rival to Peeta Mellark. "I was interested in his perspective, " Schultz told Billboard magazine "He is a man in the shadows, left waiting in the wings as Katniss takes the stage with Peeta."
