Taylor Swift gave her fans an early Christmas present last night by tweeting a link to "Safe and Sound," a new song she recorded for the Hunger Games soundtrack with folk duo the Civil Wars. The song, a dark ballad featuring harmony vocals from Joy Williams and John Paul White, features lyrics that touch on the story's themes of struggle and survival and is available exclusively on iTunes.
The Hunger Games soundtrack, which is due out on March 23rd, is the result of the first-ever collaboration between producer T-Bone Burnett and composer Danny Elfman, two of the biggest names in contemporary film music.
