News of artists who will be contributing for ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack has been going around for the past few days with “Safe & Sound” by Taylor Swift feat. The Civil Wars being the first track to be revealed two days ago, followed by names of more artists who will be contributing to ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack yesterday.
While we had reported previously besides Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars, Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire and The Decemberists will also be contributing to ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, Variety has now revealed more information about the tracks.

Taylor Swift, T-Bone Burnett on “Hunger Games” album
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Country singer Taylor Swift will lead a host of musicians collaborating with Oscar-winning artist T. Bone Burnett for a companion album to the upcoming film, “The Hunger Games.” Movie studio Lionsgate said on Friday that Burnett has joined forces with Swift, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire and The Civil Wars to create original songs for the film, set for release in March 2012.
What do you think of the new addition of artists here? Perhaps it is just me but it does sounds like The Civil Wars will have their own songs in the soundtrack as well besides collaborating with Taylor Swift.
