Author Stephenie Meyer's site has revealed the New Moon soundtrack cover artwork and one of the songs that will be on the album! Indie group Death Cab for Cutie wrote the song "Meet Me on the Equinox" for the movie. How cool is that? Atlantic Records released this quote from the band...
We are very excited to be a part of this amazing series of novels set in our own backyard. It just seemed a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We wrote 'Meet Me On the Equinox' to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight series and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters. This song marks the first attempt that Death Cab for Cutie has ever made at contributing new, unreleased material for a film and we are proud to be a part of the Twilight legacy.I love Death Cab for Cutie, so I'm sure the song is beautiful. This soundtrack has a lot to live up to after the amazing Twilight soundtrack. I've heard whispers that two of my faves, Bon Iver and Kings of Leon, may appear on the album.
