MySpace today announced that they’ll be debuting the soundtrack to The Twilight Saga: New Moon today on on the once-relevant social-networking site. Fans will be able to listen to all 15 tracks from the soundtrack, which doesn’t arrive in stores until October 16, in their entirety.
Compiled by music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, the New Moon soundtrack is packed with emerging artists and boasts heavy amounts of indie street cred — presumably a tactic used by director Chris Weitz to neutralize the film against the barbs of cynical hipsters:
1. Death Cab For Cutie – Meet Me On The Equinox
2. Band of Skulls – Friends
3. Thom Yorke – Hearing Damage
4. Lykke Li – Possibility
5. The Killers – A White Demon Love Song
6. Anya Marina – Satellite Heart
7. Muse – I Belong To You (New Moon Remix)
8. Bon Iver and St. Vincent – Rosyln
9. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Done All Wrong
10. Hurricane Bells – Monsters
11. Sea Wolf – The Violet Hour
12. OK Go – Shooting the Moon
13. Grizzly Bear (featuring Victoria Legrand) – Slow Life
14. Editors – No Sound But the Wind
15. Alexandre Desplat – New Moon (The Meadow)
Clever move, Mr. Weitz. You win this battle. The war, however, is far from over.
New Moon opens everywhere November 20, 2009.
