T Bone Burnett Leads The Hunger Games With Taylor Swift and More
The companion album will feature all newly written and recorded songs, based on themes embodied in The Hunger Games.
Taylor Swift collaborated with the Civil Wars and Burnett to write and perform the lead single "Safe and Sound," which was launched on iTunes on December 23rd.
The album will be released next year in advance of the film, which is in theaters everywhere March 23, 2012.
Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire have written a song with Burnett entitled Horn Of Plenty, and The Decemberists have contributed an original song, One Engine, both of which will appear on the album to be released in March.
The album will be recorded, mixed and mastered to The Code Standard developed by Burnett and his team, resulting in archival-quality, future-proof tracks that will enable the listener to experience recorded music in the best possible quality across the technological spectrum.
