“I’m so excited about this. This is probably my favorite video I’ve ever gotten to do, my absolute favorite.” Taylor said to MTV News’ Sway Calloway.
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.
