MUSIC NEWS - The release of "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK", the music from the the highly anticipated second installment in the film franchise has been announced. It'll be in stores and at online shopped October 20th, the entire soundtrack features songs that will appear in the movie, highlighted by Death Cab for Cutie's brand new single "Meet Me On the Equinox" (full tracklist below). And, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON is slated to open in theatres nationwide on November 20th from Chop Shop / Atlantic Records.
Death Cab's bassist, Nick Harmer said; "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. It just seems a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We are not only proud to be a part of the TWILIGHT legacy but also honored to join so many other fantastic artists that have leant their amazing creativity to this soundtrack."

Also included is a remix from Muse, who not only appeared on the original "TWILIGHT" soundtrack but is one of author Stephanie Meyer's favorite bands.
