Arcade Fire and The Decemberists to be on The Hunger Games Soundtrack

With the release of Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars' song Safe & Sound, we've gotten wind of two other artists to be on The Hunger Games soundtrack and we're thrilled!
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. 
"We are thrilled to have such a hauntingly beautiful companion album taking shape," said Joe Drake, co-COO of Lionsgate.

More details have been released.
Arcade Fire’s Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, who won the 2011 Grammy for album of the year, also wrote a song with Burnett entitled "Horn Of Plenty." The Decemberists did their own song, "One Engine," also to appear on The Hunger Games companion album.
Horn of Plenty is most likely in reference to the Cornucopia. One Engine could be a reference to the train ride?


An unofficial twitter who reports news on Arcade Fire, claims to have spoken with the bands management and learned that the song is actually an instrumental piece written by Win and Regine, and is not a song from the band as a whole.
