T-Bone Burnett confessed to Rolling Stone that he will not be back for composing ‘THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE’ soundtrack:
I wanted to congratulate you on the Grammy nod [For Hunger Games].
Thank you very much, that’s very kind of you.
Are you gonna have any involvement with the Hunger Games sequel?
No, I’m not. You know, that was a period of time – I’m not gonna do anymore of that stuff for a few moments.
Is that anything you want to comment on?
No, not really, I’m just going in a different direction right now in my life. I don’t know how many more records I want to produce. Maybe I’ll become a farmer or something, you know?
Really? Are you saying you’re considering retirement?
No, not retirement. I’ll never retire. I might just play music, you know? I love playing music; that’s the best part of it. I’ve had a beautiful, long life in music and I don’t want to – [Bobby] Neuwirth just came over, and he wrote a song and we put it down and we’re just playing music, and that [was fun]. The [producing], it’s not as much fun.
