Published May 12, 2010Last year, the makers of the Twilight movies managed to earn some unexpected indie cred for New Moon's original soundtrack, which featured new cuts from the likes of Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear and Bon Iver.
The upcoming sequel, Eclipse, looks to have a similarly impressive soundtrack, which the makers are unveiling track-by-track over on MySpace. Although the MySpace page is currently down, you can get the updates over at the MySpaceMusic Twitter, with new updates being posted every half hour.
Several of the tracks have so far been revealed, most notably a collaboration between Beck and Bat for Lashes called "Let's Get Lost." Also, Toronto, ON new wavers Metric will be contributing the theme song "Eclipse (All Yours)," and Vampire Weekend have a track called "Jonathan Low." More artists set to contribute include the Black Keys, the Bravery, Fanfarlo and Florence + the Machine.
Although it has not yet been announced in the rollout, Twilight author Stephanie Meyer's official website revealed last week that the soundtrack's first single would be by Muse (apparently Meyer's favourite band).
We still have some more tracks to go. We'll update this post once the full tracklist has been revealed.
