New Moon Soundtrack Release
Soundtrack to New Moon will now hit stores this Friday, more than a month before movie's release.
This hardly ever happens but when you're dealing with anything Twilight related, the old rules don't apply.
According to a press release issued yesterday the early release is due to "overwhelming and unprecedented" demand. Therefore New Moon’s Soundtrack release date is being pushed up by four days from its original New Moon hits screens on November 20th. The heat on the soundtrack has carefully been stoked by a series of slow reveals of the goods, beginning with the unveiling of the Death Cab for Cutie contribution, Meet Me on the Equinox, during last month's VMAs, followed by the song's video premiere last week.
The full lineup of the soundtrack was released last month, boasting such household names as Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Muse, the Killers, OK Go, Grizzly Bear and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and lesser-known acts such as Band of Skulls, Lykke Li, Anya Marina, Bon Iver with St. Vincent, Hurricane Bells, Sea Wolf and the Editors. And then, just this last week, 30-second clips of all of the songs appeared online on the UK Amazon site.
