Eclipse Soundtrack: Fanfarlo and Muse Sneak Peeks!
Well, I wouldn't call this a sneak peek of Atlas by Fanfarlo (track #6 on the Eclipse soundtrack). How about the whole song! :)
Now this would be considered a sneak peek of Neutron Star Collision by Muse (track #2 on the Eclipse soundtrack), as it is only 30 seconds of the song, but that's better than the 8 seconds we got before:
Also, Metric posted on their MySpace blog about them getting on the Eclipse soundtrack!
"Yes ... It’s official. Our song “All Yours”, co-written with the legendary film composer Howard Shore and performed by Metric, is going to be featured in the movie Eclipse, the next installment in the worldwide phenomenon known as the Twilight saga.
I've always wanted to write music for film, but I never expected to start with something on this scale, so you can imagine how surprised I was when out of nowhere I got a phone call from Howard Shore, who I’d never met or even spoken with before. Most people know him as the man who wrote the acclaimed score for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but I grew up on Shore's earlier works-- his score for David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch in collaboration with jazz great Ornette Coleman still stands as one of the most ambitious & unusual scores out there.
To my amazement, Howard was calling to ask me to work with him on his latest project: scoring the next Twilight movie, Eclipse. He wanted Jimmy & I to write the theme song for the pivotal last scene in the movie, integrating the music from his existing score into a composition that would express the emotional ending of the film. Seriously?!?! The lyrics would have to be in the voice of the main character Bella, and we had to stay within the confines of harmonic and melodic themes Howard had in mind for the last scene."
