Listen: Arcade Fire – “Abraham’s Daughter”

Since putting out the critically acclaimed album The Suburbs, Arcade Fire did not release any new music up until now, when the band unveiled their contribution to the soundtrack for The Hunger Games. The anthemic “Abraham’s Daughter” was first made available by Entertainment Weekly, but has since been removed from their website. You can still listen to the track here.

“Abraham’s Daughter” is set to appear on the upcoming film’s soundtrack alongside new work from The Decemberists, Kid Cudi, Neko Case, and more. Arcade Fire also contributed an orchestral piece entitled “Horn of Plenty” for the album, which will be released on March 20th. The Hunger Games will appear in theaters everywhere three days later.
