Taylor Swift is entering the "Hunger Games" arena next week with her soundtrack video for "Safe & Sound" in tow. The clip, which features the Civil Wars, will have its global premiere on Tuesday (February 14).

After the video's premiere — which will also air live on MTV's channels in Canada, Europe, Latin America, Australia, Asia and Africa — the Grammy-nominated singer will sit down with MTV News' for a 30-minute interview.

"We're proud to be partnering with Taylor to introduce her new music video to our worldwide audience to every screen known to man or robot, while simultaneously providing multiple layers of editorial content and context," Van Toffler, president of Viacom Music & Logo Group, said in a statement. "This global premiere underscores our mission to connect artists and their fans through a content-first strategy."

Before the premiere, fans will be treated to exclusive content from the video and learn more about the song, which is the lead single from the "Hunger Games" soundtrack. "Safe & Sound" was written by Swift, the Civil Wars and T-Bone Burnett, the film's composer.

The "Hunger Games" soundtrack, which also features Arcade Fire and the Decemberists, drops March 20; the movie hits theaters days later, on March 23.
