After getting a one-minute snippet, Taylor Swift's new song "Eyes Open" is unleashed in its entirety. The fresh track is one of the "songs from District 12 and beyond" which serve as anthems for highly-anticipated movie "The Hunger Games".
"Yesterday we were just children/ Playing soldier just pretending/ Dreaming dreams with happy ending," the country music crooner sings. "In backyards battle with the wooden swords/ But now we've stepped into a cruel world / Where everybody stands and keeps score."
The soundtrack album will also feature songs by Kid Cudi, Miranda Lambert, The Civil Wars, The Decemberists and Arcade Fire. The CD is going to arrive in the United States on March 20, while "The Hunger Games" itself will be released nationwide three days later.
