American Music Award winning artist Taylor Swift premiered her brand new music video for “Safe and Sound” yesterday. In the video, which Swift described as a “death lullaby” in a recent MTV interview, she co-stars with the Civil Wars in the lead single made for “The Hunger Games” soundtrack.
The video, which features Swift walking alone through a gray forest, takes its themes of death from the book by Suzanne Collins. In the book, a teenage girl is forced to battle several other adolescents to the death in a situation reminiscent of Battle Royale, as entertainment for the capital city of Panem. Watch the music video below:
