Why do we like this?
A brand new song from Arcade Fire! "Abraham's Daughter" is slated to appear in The Hunger Games movie, and boy does have it have a haunting tune to it. You can find a full track-listing here, including work from The Decemberists, Kid Cudi and Neko Case.

Win Butler himself weighed in on their thought process going into composition:

I tried to put myself in the headspace of how excited I'd be if this film was coming out when I was 15. I still remember hearing Radiohead's "˜Exit Music (for a Film)' in [Baz Luhrmann's] Romeo + Juliet when I was that age.

Our whole approach was to get into the world and try to create something that serves the story and the film," he continued. "There's something in the story of Abraham and Isaac that I think resonates with the themes in the film, like sacrificing children. So we made a weird, apocryphal, alternate-universe version of that, where it's as if Abraham had a daughter "” kind of a metaphor for Katniss.
