Getting backed by the amazing folk-pop duo The Civil Wars, Taylor Swift’s Safe & Sound takes a departure from her more mainstream roots into a beautiful grey area. The stunning song is the featured track from the Hunger Games soundtrack, which according to iTunes will drop on March 20th, three days before the movie opens across the country.
Personally, I think this is Swift’s best work by a landslide…
In addition to Safe & Sound, Kid Cudi’s The Ruler & the Killer, and Arcade Fire’s Abraham’s Daughter, new songs from Miranda Lambert, Once star Glen Hansard, and the Decemberists are also included on the disc.
