You already knew Paramore and Perry Farrell had secured spots on the “Twilight” soundtrack , but there was much speculation about who else would be joining them. Would author Stephenie Meyer’s faves, Muse, make the cut? Or how about Blue October, whose frontman Justin Furstenfeld toured with Meyer back in August? And while we’re at it, maybe Vampire Weekend or the Blood Brothers could sneak their way on there — you know, thanks to their names and all.
Well, we can stop speculating: On Monday (October 6), the folks at Chop Shop Records (and Atlantic Records too) announced the official track listing for the “Twilight” soundtrack, which arrives in stores on November 4.
And to answer your questions: Yes, Muse are on there. No, Blue October aren’t. And neither are Vampire Weekend or the Blood Brothers (they broke up last year, after all).
Instead, the soundtrack boasts contributions from Linkin Park, Iron & Wine, MuteMath and Collective Soul. Also, Team Edward fans will rejoice that star Robert Pattinson’s song “Never Think” made the cut. Producers also confirmed that all the songs featured on the soundtrack will actually be in the “Twilight” movie, making good on director Catherine Hardwicke’s promise that though Pattinson’s version of “Bella’s Lullaby” was ultimately replaced , his musical talents didn’t go to waste.
In addition to Paramore’s “Decode,” which premiered on Meyer’s Web site last week, their song “I Caught Myself” is also on the soundtrack. According to a source at Atlantic, the band is slated to shoot a video for “Decode,” the album’s first single, early next week.
Here’s the full track list for the “Twilight” soundtrack, according to Chop Shop/ Atlantic:
Muse – “Supermassive Black Hole”
Paramore – “Decode”
The Black Ghosts – “Full Moon”
Linkin Park – “Leave Out All the Rest”
MuteMath – “Spotlight” (“Twilight” mix)
Perry Farrell – “Go All the Way (Into the Twilight)”
Collective Soul – “Tremble for My Beloved”
Paramore – “I Caught Myself “
Blue Foundation – “Eyes on Fire”
Rob Pattinson – “Never Think”
Iron & Wine – “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”
Carter Burwell – “Bella’s Lullaby”
