The Hunger Games are coming up quicker than you could ever imagine! We’ve got movie posters and trailers and photos galore, so we thought it was time to add some awesome music to the mix. Most of you already know that Taylor Swift‘s song (featuring The Civil Wars) has made it onto The Hunger Games companion album. Now, after much waiting, the entire Panem playlist has been revealed! You excited? We are.
The album has a prominent country vibe, and the southern twang doesn’t just stop at T-Swift, but continues with artists like Miranda Lambert and the Carolina Chocolate Drops, who are a folksy Appalachian band. Other prominent artists that will be featured on the album include Neko Case, The Secret Sisters, Arcade Fire, Kid Cudi, and The Decemberists.

I usually am not a purchaser of albums (especially country-ish albums), but I have to say that I might just have to cough up the bucks on this one. How about you all? Are you going to lend T-Swift your ears?
Her second song, “Eyes Wide Open,” is one she seems very excited about. She told MTV News: “I have another song on the soundtrack, and it just ended up coming together so organically. I can’t believe it, really.”
For those who haven’t yet heard “Safe & Sound” (featuring The Civil Wars) make sure to take a listen below! It’s twangy and T-Swifty!
