Today we get to hear another song from The Hunger Games soundtrack (we’ve heard several so far): Arcade Fire’s Abraham’s Daughter!

Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive first listen (below) and spoke to group leader Win Butler about “his inspiration for the song, which will play over the movie’s closing credits”:

“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.”

What do you think of the tune? Also listen to Taylor Swift’s Safe & Sound, The Secret Sister’s Tomorrow Will Be Kinder, and The Decemberists’ One Engine.
