This is actually really exciting news, and not because I am a fan of this series. Taking a huge shift from Twilight‘s soundtrack, which was full of Linkin Park-esc tunes, the New Moon soundtrack will feature much more melancholy sounds. According to Paste Magazine, Thom Yorke, Bon Iver and Death Cab for Cutie will all appear on the soundtrack which is to be released on Oct. 20. Death Cab announced on Thursday their song “Meet Me on the Equinox” would be featured on the soundtrack. No word on which Bon Iver or Thom Yorke songs will be used, but no doubt they will be characteristically heartbreaking. Looks like I will be adding this album to my collection!
