Twilight: New Moon Track List Announced Today (Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, Lykke Li and More)

The track list for the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack was announced today and aside from having some top indie acts on it, here’s why it’s kind of a big deal:

For the music industry, though, its soundtrack is practically a miracle. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the [Twilight] soundtrack has sold 2.2 million copies, a once-routine quantity that in an age of depressed sales has become tantalizingly rare. So like vampires drawn to the scent of blood, record labels, publishers and artist managers have spent much of the last year aggressively pursuing “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” the second in the series, which will open in theaters on Nov. 20.

Alexandra Patsavas, the music supervisor on both films, was hired for “New Moon” in January but said in an interview this week that the pitches for the soundtrack started coming in even before then. And although the list of songs for “New Moon” is still being completed, music executives say they have already begun pushing to have their artists included in the third film, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” scheduled for release next June.
