Some Bands Confirmed for New Moon Soundtrack!


'New Moon' Soundtrack Confirmation: Prime Your Ears For Muse, Radiohead & Band of Skulls
Posted July 20th, 2009 by Amy Wilkinson in Movie News, Twilight Forever!

If only we'd had Alice's prescient powers, we would have seen this coming. After months of speculation about which artists will be featured on the "New Moon" soundtrack (Kelly Clarkson maybe? Or Jasper himself, Jackson Rathbone? What about Lee Safar and Kings of Leon?), we finally have word from director Chris Weitz as to a few of the artists gracing the album. According to The L.A. Times, Muse, Radiohead and Band of Skulls will appear on the much-thirsted-for soundtrack.

This marks the second time Muse will contribute to a Saga soundtrack. Their "Supermassive Black Hole," which you'll recall accompanied the baseball scene in "Twilight," was also the opening track to the movie's album. Author Stephenie Meyer is a devoted fan of the band, often using their songs as inspiration while writing. She lists no fewer than four songs, among them "Hyper Music" and "Apocalypse Please" as unofficial playlist tracks for "New Moon."
Brit band Radiohead is also a favorite of the author. Though they don't appear on Stephenie's "New Moon" playlist, their seminal "Creep" crept on to the author's unofficial "Twilight" playlist.

The lone "Twilight" franchise newcomer among the bunch is Band of Skulls. The British alt-rock band formed in 2008 and released their first album, "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey," in March.

Though we have yet to find out which songs will be used for the album, it's nice to know which artists we can expect to hear from. It's a welcome, though not all-together surprising, list thus far.
