‘The Hunger Games’ Soundtrack To Include The Secret Sisters’s “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder”?

While we had reported that The Civil Wars and Taylor Swift performed “Safe and Sound” together live for the very first time as well as Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire and The Decemberists will also be contributing to ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack.

Lydia and Laura Rogers from The Secret Sisters

According to Times Daily.com, besides the aforementioned artists, American traditional country music duo, The Secret Sisters, will also be contributing a song named “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder” to ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack.

Here’s a snippet of the interview with Times Daily.com where they mentioned ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack:

We were in Australia when the tornadoes came through Alabama (in April 2011). It was so tough for us to be away from home when all that was going on. There, Lydia sat down and wrote a song stemming from that sadness, “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder.” Even though it came from a really dark circumstance, it is about looking forward to better days. Just recently, we found out that song is going to be on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack. We recorded that song with T Bone in New York.

Lionsgate has not given any confirmation on this matter yet. We will update you when we have a confirmation.

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.

The Civil Wars Talks About ‘Safe and Sound’ With American Songwriter

‘Safe and Sound’ by Taylor Swift feat. The Civil Wars was revealed on 23 December 2011 and the song was well received by Hunger Games fans and non-Hunger Games fans alike for it had reached No. 1 on iTunes Single Chart in just around 24 hours time after it was revealed.

American Songwriter had an interview with The Civil Wars recently where they spoke about producing ‘Safe and Sound’ along with other stuff.

Sounding more like The Swell Season than the product of Music City marketing, “Safe And Sound” relies on a swelling melody, and is built around an escalating run of notes that leaves you hungry for more. Swift takes the main vocal, and the Civil Wars’ Joy Williams joins in on harmony. Drums march softly in the background, leading to a more fleshed-out sound than we’re used to hearing from one of 2011′s standout acts.

The song, which will be featured in the eagerly-awaited film The Hunger Games, was co-written by Swift and the band, and produced by Americana music maven T Bone Burnett. “We had an amazingly soulful, organic, productive time with him,” notes Williams — the duo recently teamed with the producer on a couple of unnamed projects. “So we were honored when we were asked to collaborate with him and Taylor Swift. We had a great session, surprisingly fast. So fast, we were able to hop into T-Bone’s bedroom studio, put down an acoustic track and some vocals before heading to our show at The Wiltern.”

John Paul White also shared his pride in the track. ““We would’ve never guessed the song would become the lead single for the film,” he tells Paste. “That didn’t matter to us—we were just proud of it. Each of our fingerprints was indelibly there. Within the time frame of a month, this song went from thin air, to a computer near you.”

Head over to American Songwriter to read the full article.

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.

Variety: James Newton Howard To Replace Danny Elfman For ‘The Hunger Games’ Score

T Bone Burnett and James Newton Howard.

Variety reports that due to schedule conflicts, Danny Elfman will not compose the score of ‘The Hunger Games’ with T-Bone Burnett. James Newton Howard will replace Danny Elfman and work with T-Bone Burnett on ‘The Hunger Games’ score instead.

I’m afraid to say that I don’t know much about music though this is rather surprising considering we are only around 105 days away from release of “The Hunger Games” movie. That’s rather short amount of time to start from scratch if that’s what they are planning to do. James Newton Howard does have a pretty impressive portfolio too and you can check out a list of his works, including awards and nominations, over here.

Lionsgate has not commented on this sudden change yet.

What do you make of this? I’m still definitely looking forward to the score and soundtrack! Still no word regarding “Rue’s Lullaby” which is sang by Jennifer Lawrence though.
