If Katniss Everdeen was a movie soundtrack, this is the one she would be. Because this movie sound track is a survivor, and it also likes to sleep in trees.
If that sentence didn't make sense to you, you obviously aren't a fan of The Hunger Games, so go find yourself a cave and a guy called Peeta and sort your life out.
If you are a fan, or are at least aware of the books, you will be super excited for the March 22 release of the movie (starring the brilliant Jennifer Lawrence). And now the official sound track has just been announced, and it's full of amazing bands and artists.
Here's the track list:
01. Taylor Swift (feat. The Civil Wars) – Safe & Sound
02. Taylor Swift – Eyes Wide Open
03. Arcade Fire – Abraham’s Daughter
04. Kid Cudi – The Ruler & The Killer
05. Miranda Lambert (feat. Pistol Annies) – Run Daddy Run
06. The Civil Wars – Kingdom Come
07. The Decemberists – One Engine
08. Glen Hansard – Take the Heartland
09. The Low Anthem – Lover is Childlike
10. Punch Brothers – Dark Days
11. Secret Sisters – Tomorrow Will Be Kinder
12. Birdy – Just a Game
13. Ella Mae Bowen – Oh Come & Sing
14. Jayme Dee – Rules
15. Carolina Chocolate Drops – Reaping Day
16. Neko Case – Give Me Something I’ll Remember
For a big blockbuster, that is some serious (and kind of strange) indie leaning there. Turns out the people in charge just like good music. Yay for them.
The sound track is released March 19.
Have a listen to Taylor Swift & The Civil Wars 'Safe And Sound' here, it's not your standard Tay-Tay song, and it fits the storyline perfectly. (and it's available on iTunes here: )
Now let's all go find ourselves some sponsors to help us wait for it's release.
