It seems like anyone who’s anyone in the indie rock world has at one time or another been linked with the upcoming soundtrack for the big screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s ‘New Moon’, the sequel to last year’s box office titan ‘Twilight’. Finally, Meyer herself has put an end to all the speculation, posting the official tracklist for the album on her website earlier today. And it doesn’t skimp on big-name participation! Although female artists are very much in the minority here, St Vincent and Lykke Li prove the biggest draws with the former teaming up with Bon Iver for new track ‘Roslyn’ and the latter providing fresh material with a song called ‘Possibilities’. Californian indie-pop artist Anya Marina is also on the list with new song ‘Satellite Heart’.
‘New Moon’ debuts in cinemas in November, while the soundtrack should be available by the end of October. With a line-up like this, it looks likely to rival the 2.2 million US sales for the ‘Twilight’ soundtrack.
