While "Hunger Games" fans implore anyone who'll listen that it's totally different from the "Twilight" franchise, they can't deny that Lionsgate is following the Summit playbook. The marketing rollout is pretty much targeting the exact same demographic in almost the same way (epic story combined with feelings), and that goes right down to the soundtrack as well. While the film is just over a month away, no final tracklist has been revealed yet, but the pieces are starting to come together.

Neko Case Jim Jarmusch Fucked Up

While "Hunger Games" fans implore anyone who'll listen that it's totally different from the "Twilight" franchise, they can't deny that Lionsgate is following the Summit playbook. The marketing rollout is pretty much targeting the exact same demographic in almost the same way (epic story combined with feelings), and that goes right down to the soundtrack as well. While the film is just over a month away, no final tracklist has been revealed yet, but the pieces are starting to come together.

Fantastic alt-country singer/songwriter Neko Case recently confirmed on Twitter (via Hunger Games Trilogy Fansite) that she'll be joining the ranks of the soundtrack to the upcoming film that so far includes Arcade Fire duo Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, The Descemberists, Taylor Swift with The Civil Wars (listen to their song here), The Secret Sisters and Jennifer Lawrence singing a tune, with T. Bone Burnett manning the boards. So basically, hipsters are gonna begrudingly love it. Adding that the song is titled "Nothing To Remember," Case said, "Finishing up 'Hunger Games' song. Heard the other tracks on the CD and DAMN! Theres some FINE singing on it! Lookin' at you Secret Sisters!"

Meanwhile, in other music/movie news, Canadian punk supergroup badasses Fucked Up have dropped their latest in the ongoing single series around the signs of the zodiac, Year Of The Tiger. It's out on 12" vinyl but in case you don't have a turntable, it's now available to stream (via Pitchfork). You'll have to set aside some time -- it's 15 minutes long -- but it features Jim Jarmsuch in some capacity (along with Austra and Annie-Claude Deschênes of Duchess Says). Turn up your speakers, and listen below.
