The winner of the New Moon soundtrack sweepstakes has just been announced, Twilight superfans, and it is, on reflection, the perfect apex where Twi and twee meet: Death Cab for Cutie.

The Washington-State indie rockers have written and recorded the song “Meet Me On the Equinox” specifically for the eversoslightly anticipated second installment of the lusty-vampire series. The track will be unveiled Sept. 13 on MTV’s website during the Video Music Awards broadcast.

The entire New Moon soundtrack, curated by music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas (Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy) will hit stores Oct. 20. In general, it’s shaping up to be an even alt-ier effort than the original Twilight mix, with names like Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear and double-timers Muse all rumored to be included.

What do you think, Music Mixers? Is Death Cab the band to usher Bella, Edward et al through their second round of big-screen supernatural shenanigans (as seen below in the DCFC-free trailer)? What other acts are you still holding out for?
