Here’s the official trailer for Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift featuring the Civil Wars. This debuted on MTV last night (USA) for the upcoming anticipated movie The Hunger Games. I admit that I am not really a big fan of Taylor Swift (or The Civil Wars for that matter) but she/they nailed this song! It’s perfect for the movie. The MV gives off the feeling of love and sadness that has so much relevance to The Hunger Games. I felt like I am Katniss and I am clinging to Primrose. I HAVE TOO MANY FEELINGS.
Taylor told in an interview that this is her favorite music video she ever made. She also talked about The Hunger Games, how it is more about Compassion and Bravery. I hope they get to interview The Civil Wars, too! I mean, the song will not be this awesome if they didn’t collaborate, right? Plus, The Civil Wars voices are heavenly which matched Taylor’s.
The song was produced by T-Bone Burnett and the music video was taken in a cemetery in Tennessee. It’s a lovely place, isn’t? It didn’t actually looked like a cemetery but more of a forest. I wonder if it looks like the real District 12 of Panem? What do you think, guys?
