Arcade Fire - "Horn of Plenty" (full version)
By Josiah HughesAfter hearing the Arcade Fire's Hunger Games contribution "Abraham's Daughter," fans have now unearthed the full version of the song "Horn of Plenty."

Previously speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Win Butler explained the track with the following statement:

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.

Butler is not far off, as fans expecting more Montreal indie pop will be surprised by how much this sounds like a legit national anthem. Check it out here.

Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
