Double LP Soundtrack From The Hunger Games Film Includes Music by Taylor Swift, Neko Case, Arcade Fire, The Civil Wars, The Decemberists & More! Produced by Grammy Winning Producer T Bone Burnett!
The soundtrack to "The Hunger Games" features a bumper crop of new and unreleased songs by Taylor Swift, the Arcade Fire and the Decemberists.
The album is produced by Grammy-winning producer T Bone Burnett. Burnett and the group the Civil Wars got together to write an original tune for the soundtrack with Swift, the first single, "Safe and Sound." The tune shot to #1 on the iTunes singles list within 24 hours of release.
Also serving up fresh tracks are Arcade Fire, who collaborated with Burnett on "Horn of Plenty," and the Decemberists, who've offered up the original song "One Engine." The soundtrack features all new songs based on themes that figure into the movie's storyline.
Inspired by the best-selling young-adult novel by Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games" follows the path of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who is chosen to compete in a vicious televised tournament in which 24 teenagers from a post-apocalyptic society fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses. The film also stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, as well as Woody Harrelson and rocker Lenny Kravitz.
