With the success that “The Hanging Tree” has been getting on iTunes, a pop version has been released with the hopes that it can find its way on to the radio.  You can listen to it by going here.

“The Hanging Tree” is song by the Mockingjay star, Jennifer Lawrence (aka Katniss) and she sings the song at a time of the movie when the rebellion needed another spark. It did just that, as it lead to another rebellious fight against The Capital.

The song means a lot to the movie as it’s a sullen song that went with the tone of the movie, but this pop version is more upbeat and can easily be played a club somewhere. This comes as a shocker to the fans of the book and the movies as they love the song (even though Jennifer Lawrence hated singing it) and

“The Hanging Tree” premiered on the #12 on the Billboard Top 100 and #2 on the Digital chart. It could easily grab the top spot by next week. Right now, the song is only available on iTunes and you can go here to buy your copy of the song.
