taylor swift hunger games 'The Hunger Games' soundtrack: Taylor Swift, The Decemberists, Miranda Lambert, Kid Cudi and moreWith a little more than a month left until “The Hunger Games” finally makes its way to theaters, the full tracklisting for the official companion soundtrack has been revealed. Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars‘ collaboration “Safe and Sound” came out way back in December, and today (Feb. 13) we can hear the second tune from the album. 

The Decemberists contributed the original song “One Engine” for the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ YA novel, and you can download the tune now if you pre-order the soundtrack on iTunes. Oscar-winning music producer T. Bone Burnett (“Crazy Heart”) and composer James Newton Howard oversaw the music for the film, and the pair has chosen a great mix of artists.

Collins has said District 12 is supposed to be located somewhere in Appalachia, so the fact that there are quite a few country and folk artists on the soundtrack makes sense. Also on the album are indie rockers Arcade Fire and rapper Kid Cudi, among others. “Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond” comes out March 20, while the film hits theaters on March 23.
