If you own a computer, there’s no way you missed the fact that the track listing for the Eclipse soundtrack was just revealed. It reads like your cool cousin’s iTunes “Recently Played” list. Florence + The Machine, Metric, Vampire Weekend, The Black Keys and more indie-rock-inspired artists and singles all add a musical element to the “Twilight” saga’s third installment. And adding some serious music-cred gravity to the Eclipse soundtrack’s offerings is Muse — author Stephenie Meyer’s favorite band. (And possibly yours too.)
Muse’s contribution to the “Eclipse” soundtrack is a brand-new song, “Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever).” And while “Twilight” and “New Moon” both featured Muse songs, “Eclipse” marks the first time Muse lent a brand-new song to the franchise’s soundtrack.
The “Eclipse” soundtrack is out June 8, (though TRILLIONS of you obviously preordered it), but we’ve got a sneak peek of Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever)” video right here. Watch it and stay tuned for the video premiere on MTV.com Thursday, May 20.
