Muse announced as first artists on upcoming 'Twilight: Eclipse' soundtrack; more to come
Image Credit: Danny Clinch; Kimberley FrenchShocker, vamp fans: Stephanie Meyer’s most favorite mortals, anthemic U.K. pomp-rockers Muse, will lead the upcoming Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack, due June 8.
The band’s Twilight hat trick continues with the original song “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever),” debuting at radio May 17; more soundtrack names are expected to be released early next week.
Will Eclipse move away from the predominantly Pitchfork-y New Moon lineup, which showcased indie all-stars Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, and Death Cab for Cutie and boosted baby bands like Band of Skulls, Sea Wolf, Anya Maria, and Hurricane Bells? Should alumni like Paramore and Death Cab return?
Will artists in the tears-of-blood Twilight wheelhouse—say, My Chemical Romance, Evanescence, or AFI—finally join the fray? Or should Robert Pattinson just bite his lip and moan longingly over a C-F-G chord progression?
