New Moon soundtrack to be revealed Friday
The New York Times has released an in-depth expose on the New Moon soundtrack.
Speaking to the music supervisor for the film, the New York Times investigates the process for track selection for this album which has gained so much industry interest as a result of the Twilight soundtrack's immense success.
According to the interview,
"Ms. Patsavas, known for her work on television shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Gossip Girl,” said she was confident that the “New Moon” soundtrack would include Thom Yorke, Bon Iver and Band of Skulls. Death Cab for Cutie’s “Meet Me on the Equinox,” the first single, had its premiere on MTV.com on Sunday, as part of a “Twilight” promotional blitz surrounding MTV’s Video Music Awards. There has been extensive speculation in the music industry all summer about who else would be included. Representatives of Grizzly Bear and the Killers said those groups would be on the soundtrack, but Ms. Patsavas declined to comment, saying that the track list would be completed and announced on Friday."
Also, "All the music for 'New Moon' is new, and Ms. Patsavas said some artists were shown scenes from the film as a guide."
