Fresh Listen: Taylor Swift Is ‘Safe & Sound’ with New Hunger Games Track
Just before Christmas, my future wife, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Taylor Swift[/lastfm], teased on her Twitter account that there was “something I’ve been VERY excited about for a VERY long time is going to be happening VERY soon” and then the next day she dropped a link to her new song, “Safe & Sound,” a collaboration track for the upcoming Hunger Games film.
Take a listen to the new song, featuring vocals and guitars from her pals The Civil Wars.
GRAMMY winners [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Civil Wars[/lastfm] back up Ms. Swift on acoustic guitar and vocals on this song which will be featured on the film’s soundtrack. Said soundtrack also includes songs by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Arcade Fire[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Decemberists[/lastfm]. How hipsterific!
Since the release and subsequent Tweets by Taylor to her 10 million + Twitter followers, “Safe & Sound” quickly moved to the top of the iTunes Songs chart!
Here’s the trailer for Hunger Games:
What do you think of the new song? Let us know in the comments section below!
