‘The Hunger Games’ Soundtrack: Taylor Swift, Kid Cudi + More Featured
The tracklisting for the soundtrack appears in iTunes, along with an expected release date of March 20. Swift's 'Safe and Sound,' a haunting collaboration with the Civil Wars, has already been released, and now we know that she will also offer a new track called 'Eyes Wide Open.' The Civil Wars have a second tune on the album as well, called 'Kingdom Come.'
Kid Cudi is the only hip-hop superstar on the project, although, given his occasional tendency to dabble in rock music, we'll have to wait to find out which genre his song 'The Ruler & The Killer' represents. Lambert, wife of 'The Voice' mentor Blake Shelton, sings 'Run Daddy Run' with her Pistol Annies side project, while the Arcade Fire perform 'Abraham's Daughter.'
Among the other acts who contribute music are indie songbird Neko Case, Grammy-nominated rock band the Decemberists, and Academy Award winner Glen Hansard of the Swell Season.
