This track is definitely a departure for Taylor, but we think it fits Katniss’ personality so well!

Taylor Swift has delivered the debut single from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games, and we think it’s one of her best songs yet! Even better, it totally captures the tone of the books — and what we hope the movie wil feel like!

Taylor tweeted about the big news on Dec. 23: “And this is it, the big surprise… Go get it.”

Taylor, 22, performs “Safe & Sound” with Nashville duo The Civil Wars, and we’re loving her more mature sound. It’s definitely another triumph for Taylor, and it makes us even MORE excited for The Hunger Games!

Do YOU love this song too, HollywoodLifers?

Freedom of speech you know? People will always have different opinions. Just because someones’s opinion differs from you doesn’t mean it’s wrong.

To everyone saying she can’t sing live: Have you listened to some songs off of the Speak Now World Tour Live album? She’s pretty flawless. Maybe she wasn’t good live a few years ago, but she’s grown up, and with that comes more mature vocal cords and time for vocal lessons.

The song is amazing,so different from the Taylor I’m used to, but I love it!

I love this song and think it will be incredable in the movies. Her haters need to stop and leave her alone. Her vocals and the tine of the song are great.

if someone wants to die in a painful death they should listen to Taylor swift’s voice. I can’t even imagine her sing this live it would be impossible for her because she can’t carry a tune OMG. Thanks Adele exist and has real talent.
