The chart-topping companion album to the film THE HUNGER GAMES, “THE HUNGER GAMES”: SONGS FROM DISTRICT 12 AND BEYOND, will unlock a free download of “Deep in the Meadow (Lullaby)” performed by world-renowned musician Sting beginning March 27, 2012. The track can also be purchased as a single from major digital retailers.
“Lullaby” remains a centerpiece of THE HUNGER GAMES. In the story, the protagonist Katniss [Jennifer Lawrence] learns the song from her father who sang it to her as a child. Passing down the tradition, Katniss sings it to her little sister Primrose, as well as to fellow Tribute Rue, to calm their fears.
16-time Grammy Award winner Sting delivers a powerful and poetic rendition of ?Lullaby,? produced by acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer T-Bone Burnett. The pair last collaborated on 2003?s ?You Will Be My Ain? True Love? for the film, Cold Mountain. The song was subsequently nominated for an Academy Award, a Grammy Award and a Golden Globe.
Upon purchasing the album, fans can go to www.thehungergamesmovie.com/lullaby in order to get the track as a free download.
