“I’m so excited about this. This is probably my favorite video I’ve ever gotten to do, my absolute favorite.” On the heels of receiving two Grammy Awards – Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance, Taylor Swift releases the music video for “Safe & Sound” featuring the Grammy winning duo The Civil Wars. “Safe & Sound” will be featured in the upcoming film, The Hunger Games.
A very melancholy, eerie music video filmed in Watertown, Tennessee, may just prove to be Taylor’s best yet. Part of this video was filmed ON a tombstone from the 1800’s. Here’s what Taylor had to say about that: “There’s this wide shot where I’m just kind of crumpled up sitting on a gravestone, like a tomb, and it’s actually the gravesite of a couple who lived and died in 1853. I was just freaked out, and I’m such a history freak. I’m sitting there thinking, ‘What were their lives like?’ And now here we are, hundreds of years later, filming a music video on their grave. . .” Read the complete interview with MTV, here.
Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars released “Safe & Sound” to iTunes this past December. The Hunger Games soundtrack will be released on March 20th and the film will open on March 23rd.
