Published Sep 27, 2011While you may or not you enjoy the brooding, sexy vampire/werewolf/human love triangle that is The Twilight Saga, history has proven that producers can line up a pretty decent soundtrack to support the films. In the past, we've received comps featuring heavy hitters like Grizzly Bear and the Killers (New Moon), as well as Metric, Florence and the Machine and Muse (Eclipse). With a precedent set, the soundtrack for upcoming instalment, Breaking Dawn, is understandably another high-profile, though perhaps less satisfying, affair.
The tracklist for the soundtrack, which will be released November 8, does feature a few big names, but with the popularity of the series arguably waning in popularity (it's been three years since the saga began), perhaps the allure of pumping the bloodsucking drama is a little less attractive than it used to be. Folksters Iron & Wine would fit on a megamix of past contributors like Thom Yorke and Death Cab for Cutie, while English outfit the Joy Formidable and quirky New York rapper Theophilus London add a twinge of cache to the set.
But stadium pop singer Bruno Mars? Yikes! We can already picture Edward brooding in disapproval.
