With just hours before Christmas, country superstar Taylor Swift gave her fans an early Christmas present this year. She sent out a link on Twitter to a brand new song “Safe And Sound” which she recorded for the upcoming Hunger Games soundtrack. The movie will be released to theaters March 23rd, 2012.
She first teased fans with this Tweet:
@taylorswift13: Something I’ve been VERY excited about for a VERY long time is going to be happening VERY soon.
With everyone guessing everything under the moon, Taylor finally let the cat out of the bag. She recorded a new song “Safe And Sound” with The Civil Wars for the movie, which quickly became a trending topic on Twitter within minutes. The track is available for purchase on iTunes now. It’s a different side of Taylor which the Civil Wars help her bring out: no more love stories or catchy man-hating lyrics here! It’s a dark, folksy track that explores a new side of Taylor that fans weren’t expecting.
