Check out Taylor Swift‘s brand new-track titled “Eyes Open!” The track is the second from Taylor to be included in the soundtrack of the upcoming movie adaptation of The Hunger Games. “Eyes Open” is pretty much the opposite of “Safe & Sound,” it’s a much bigger song with a whole different mood. It’s nice to see Taylor switch things up for the soundtrack and deliver something different. The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth hits theaters March 23! What do you guys think?
“‘Eyes Open‘ and ‘Safe & Sound‘ are two songs that I wanted to represent different relationships in the story,” Taylor told Yahoo. To me, ‘Safe & Sound‘ represents the empathy and compassion Katniss feels for Rue, Peeta, and Prim in different parts of the book. ‘Eyes Open‘ is more of a depiction of Katniss’s relationship with the Capitol. She knows she can’t trust anyone in the government, and that’s why I wanted the song to feel more frantic—like the sound of being hunted or chased.
