AUDIO: Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars ‘Safe and Sound' from HUNGER GAMES Soundtrack

Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars have just released their new cut, ‘Safe and Sound', from the upcoming HUNGER GAMES soundtrack. 

THE HUNGER GAMES album will include recordings by country star Swift, The Decembrists and Arcade Fire. The album will be produced by T. Bone Burnett. The new songs featured on the upcoming album will all have themes related to the movie which is set to be released in theaters on March 23, 2012. The soundtrack is expected to be released in advance of the film's premiere.

Swift collaborated on her single 'Safe and Sound' with the Civil Wars and producer Burnett. The single rose to the number one spot on iTunes as soon as it was released this past Friday, December 23rd. Arcade Fire, the recipient of the 2011 Grammy award for album of the year, have recorded their single for the film entitled, 'Horn Of Plenty'. The Decemberitsts' tune for the album is called 'One Engine'.

The Sci-fi action film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Willow Shields, Toby Jones, Amandla Stenberg, Alexander Ludwig, Donald Sutherland, Isabelle Fuhrman, Lenny Kravitz, Jacqueline Emerson and Wes Bentley.

The film chronicles the yearly event in the ruins of what was once North America, where the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. SuzAnne Collins' best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.
