You can now hear the entire New Moon soundtrack on the official Twilight MySpace HERE!(I have it playing while I add news and do housework!) They have done an incredible job with this soundtrack. It was really cool of them to add it to their MySpace before it’s even available for purchase, too! Enjoy.
Ahhh, this is awesome. Above is a video which has a small preview of all the songs on the New Moon soundtrack! It’s good to hear the direction the music is going! I really liked the sound of LYKKE LI – POSSIBILITY. What preview did you like the sound of the most so far? TELL ME VIA MY TWITTER!!!
MTV has just released the following info and Twilight Lexicon has posted it for us all to see:
Fans Will Get the First Glimpse of the First Single From
“The Twilight Saga: New Moon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” On MTV AND MTV.com
New York, NY/London, England – October 7th, 2009: MTV will host the exclusive on-air and online world premiere of the new Death Cab for Cutie music video “Meet Me On The Equinox” on Wednesday, October 7th at 8:00pm EST on MTV and MTV.com. The video will debut on MTV Hits, mtvU & MTV Tr3s at 9:00pm EST, and it will make its AMTV / AMTV2 debut starting at 3:00am EST on Thursday, October 8th. The first single from The Twilight Saga: New Moon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, “Meet Me On The Equinox” will premiere on MTV International channels and stream on MTV websites across the globe as Twilight fans gear up for the hotly anticipated release of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” film next month.
“We wrote ‘Meet Me On the Equinox’ to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight series, and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters,” said Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer. “This song marks the first attempt that Death Cab for Cutie has ever made at contributing new, unreleased material for a film. It just seems a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We are not only proud to be a part of the Twilight legacy but also honored to join so many other fantastic artists that have leant their amazing creativity to this soundtrack.”
The Twilight Saga: New Moon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is set to release on Monday, October 19th. The Twilight Saga: New Moon arrives in theatres on Friday, November 20th in the US and UK.
♥So go online or watch this tonight!!! You don’t want to miss it.♥
Just got an email from the people over at Vanity Fair letting me know that they have just posted interviews with three of the bands from the New Moon Soundtrack! How awesome is that! When the New Moon Soundtrack list was released, there is no doubt that indie kids were stoked to see many of their favorites on the list. Vanity Fair was lucky enough to interview Alex Brown Church of Sea Wolf, Annie Clark, also known as St. Vincent (on her song with Bon Iver) andTim Nordwind of OK Go.Here is an excerpt:
Alex Brown Church of Sea Wolf on “The Violet Hour”
What does your song “The Violet Hour” sound like?
It’s a very up-tempo, peppy kind of song with a dark twist to it. It’s about a girl who is interested in me but is also wishy-washy—someone aloof. I get the sense she’s leading me on but I’m not really sure. It’s a little bit sexy.
Can you give us some sample lyrics?
Your arms are lovely
Yellow and rose
Your back’s a meadow
Covered in snow
Your thighs are thistles
And hothouse grapes
You breathe your sweet breath
And have me wait
Annie Clark, also known as St. Vincent, on her song with Bon Iver, “Rosyln.”
How does it feel to have your music reach the legions of Twilight fans?
If I had a soundtrack with Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, and Bon Iver [on it] and had been hip to that music even earlier on in life, I think I’d be better off and have a richer creative outlet to draw from at a younger age. That’s the sweet thing to me about being included on this soundtrack.
You and Justin Vernon [of the band Bon Iver] perform a duet on the soundtrack song “Roslyn.” How did that come together?
We recorded it in July and August. It was a song Justin had been working on for a while. It was a very Internet-friendly collaboration.
What’s the mood of it?
It’s a melancholy, bittersweet kind of song with softer acoustic guitar and slide guitar—we kind of make up this choir of voices. It’s a somber song, for sure, very aching, longing, and beautiful. Typical Justin Vernon.
Tim Nordwind of OK Go
What’s the song “Shooting the Moon” about?
It’s a story about an astronaut who tries to go to the moon but doesn’t quite make it. He has to come back and apologize for not making it.
An astronaut? How does that relate to Twilight?
It’s a song about trying to do the best thing but failing and then having to come back and explain. It’s about false hope.
Can you give us a sample of some of the song lyrics?
What can he tell ‘em now
Sorry I let you down
Sorry I wasn’t quite true
But don’t get hung up on it
Just soldier on with it
And good luck shooting the moon

The National Post recently had the opportunity to chat with Muse’s front man Matthew Bellamy about the band’s new album, The Resistance. They are going ot post the entire interview tomorrow, but here is an excerpt for now:
National Post:You have a song on the new Twilight film. Are you a fan?
Matt Bellamy:Well, I liked The Lost Boys in the ’80s. I remember that one had a pretty good soundtrack as well. This sort of film struck me as this generations version of The Lost Boys. It was actually Stephenie Meyer who approached the band quite a few years before the film was name, just as she was becoming known. She came to a concert in Phoenix, in Arizona – I think that’s where she lived, or she lived nearby. She was very friendly, and she told us that she liked the music and that she’d like to use the music in the films. It was a few years later that the filmmakers came to us, and we said sure. I had no idea [the first film] was going to be a film as it was, I thought is was going to be an indie film.
