“This is the coolest location for a video that I’ve ever been on!” Taylor Swift says to her crew on the set of her ‘Safe and Sound’ video with the Civil Wars. “It’s in a town call Watertown (Tenn.), and it’s very still.”

Taylor and the Civil Wars’ John Paul White and Joy Williams shot the clip in a forest, cemetery and log cabin in frigid cold Watertown, where they took breaks in front of huge heaters. But the singers weren’t complaining about the weather; the cloudy, cold day was perfect for conveying the eerie mood of the song, which is the first single from the ‘Hunger Games’ movie soundtrack.

Go behind-the-scenes of the ‘Safe and Sound’ video below, as Taylor explains the concept of the clip and her ghostly fashion choice for it.
