Taylor Swift's 'Safe and Sound' - FIRST LISTEN!

Check out the premiere of Taylor Swift‘s song “Safe and Sound,” which comes straight off of the soundtrack to the upcoming film The Hunger Games.

“Something I’ve been VERY excited about for a VERY long time is going to be happening VERY soon,” the 22-year-old singer teased on her Twitter account just a few hours before releasing the ballad, which also features vocals by The Civil Wars.

“Just close your eyes The sun is going down You’ll be all right No one can hurt you In the morning light You and I’ll be safe and sound,” Taylor sings.

Love the song. It suits the movie perfectly.

What a way to ruin the appeal of what looks like a great movie. Taylor Swift just swiftly broke any interest I had for this film.

Waw! so beautiful and I’m not even a fan of Swift! good job :)

Let me start off with this. I am probably Taylors #1 Fan (Don’t believe me? You should check out my room or ask my friends) and I am obsessed with THG too. When I heard that she was doing THG song, I was a little scared at first. Cuz I love them both so darn much that if one messed the other up I would be in tears. Well, now I’m in tears….Happy Tears! Its perfect!

I don t like this movie or taylor swift.

When is the album out?

I am not a fan of her either…but I think this is one of the best done songs by anyone…..really great. Beautifully done. I gotta go listen again.

@ashley: If you mean the soundtrack to the movie. It will be out next year. This is just a single release from the soundtrack in anticipation of the movie. I can’t wait for the rest of it.

Jared, mention the Civil Wars! They’re doing the amazing harmonies in the background and were nominated for four Grammys this year. You guys NEED to go check them out! I saw them in concert this year, and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen!

This is one of the few Taylor Swift songs I have listened to and I really do love it. The movie will be great :)
To those who think this song will ruin the movie just because it’s sung by Taylor Swift, it won’t.

I love this song! Taylor did a gret work.

This song is really good! I haven’t read the books yet, but I want to at least read the first book before seeing the movie. I’m excited:)

I concur. Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars was one of my favorite albums this year and has topped many ‘best of” lists. In addition, not only did they do the harmonizing, they also wrote the song. If you listen to their CD, this song is HEAVILY influenced by their sound.

@thg: Exactly! I really think the majority of the work and credit is due to the Civil Wars, but Taylor Swift will get all of it and it sucks….big time. Grr! lol

Coming for Oscars?
