Arcade Fire‘s “Hunger Games” track “Abraham’s Daughter” has hit the web, and its daunting tone is a perfect fit for the post-apocalyptic story.
Set to play during the credits of the film, the somber sound and startling drum beats of “Abraham’s Daughter” are reminiscent of a sad post-war tune.
“Our whole approach was to get into the world and try to create something that serves the story and the film,” Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler told EW. “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, alternate-universe version of that, where it’s as if Abraham had a daughter — kind of a metaphor for Katniss.”
“Abraham’s Daughter” isn’t Arcade Fire‘s only tune on the “Hunger Games” soundtrack, the group also contributed a song called “Horn Of Plenty.”
