With having grossed $68.3 million at the Friday box office, The Hunger Games is proving to be a game changer for Lionsgate, which is planning to release more movies based on the novel trilogy. Obviously, the audio companion is expected to top the Billboard charts next week. Arcade Fire is contributing two songs to the score, “Abraham’s Daughter” and “Horn of Plenty.” A 60-second preview of the latter has now emerged. See what AF’s Win had to say about the tune to EW.

“We were interested in making music that would be more integral in the movie, just as a mental exercise. And there’s an anthem that runs throughout the books, the national anthem of the fascist Capitol. So as a thought experiment, we tried to write what that might sound like. It’s like the Capitol’s idea of itself, basically. It’s not a pop song or anything– more of an anthem that could be playing at a big sporting event like the Games. So we did a structure for that, and then James Newton Howard made a movie-score version of it that happens in several places in the film.”

The Hunger Games: Original Motion Picture Score, which also features Cudder’s “The Ruler & The Killer,” is out Monday via Universal Republic. You can preview the epicness over at Stereogum.
