Below is one of two tracks that Arcade Fire put out for The Hunger Games, appearing on two different soundtracks. This is the one on the "songs" soundtrack, which also includes a great track from The Decemberists that I recommend checking out. But the other Arcade Fire track, on the instrumental soundtrack, is quite good too. It's credited to James Newton Howard in the iTunes store for The Hunger Games Original Motion Picture Score, but it's called "Horn of Plenty" and you can definitely hear the Arcade Fire.
And finally a new track from Dntel, who I lamented not hearing in a while in a Random Music Friday recently. And now he's back. Maybe I should write a Random Music Friday about The Smiths reuniting...
