It seems like my baby
is growing up too
fast! Taylor Swift
Teaming up with country-folk duo The Civil War, Taylor steps out of her comfort zone by contributing to ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, an upcoming movie where children have to kill each other to survive.
‘Safe & Sound’ marks a departure in
sound, replacing the ideal romanticism saturated in her lyrics with a dark,
post-apocalyptic undertone. The song starts off with a fragile Swift promising
to keep her beau ‘safe and sound’ from all the wars outside. The track then
grows darker as The Civil War and Taylor croon and harmonize, mixing the song with a haunting tone. Taylor
‘Safe & Sound’ needs to be played a few times before you’ll start to love it, but once you love it, you certainly won’t get enough.
Long live, Queen Taylor!
