Taylor Swift set the mood for the “Hunger Games” soundtrack with her release of “Safe & Sound”. The video, which premiered Monday (February 13) during “MTV First: Taylor Swift.” Co-stars the Civil Wars. The video’s chilliness encapsulates the sadness of the song, the lead single from the “Hunger Games” soundtrack.

We see a moody, emotional Swift, walking barefoot through the woods, her hair and makeup noticeably undone, wearing a long, white gown. As she makes her way through the cloudy, damp forest, there’s destruction around her, as parts of the wooded area burn behind her (a theme to match the upcoming movie).

Hunger Games Synopsis: In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. ~ by Suzanne Collins
