Fans of the Stephenie Meyer Twilight series know what a vital part music played in her creation of the book series. The Twilight Soundtrack became an instant best seller, and fans eagerly await the release of the New Moon Soundtrack yet to come.
Atlantic Records (the record label that produced the Twilight Soundtrack) has made the following announcement:
“The first single has officially been confirmed for the New Moon Soundtrack! Death Cab for Cutie has written an exclusive song for the movie entitled ‘Meet Me On the Equinox.’ ”
And here is a statement from Nick Harmer of Death Cab for Cutie
“We are very excited to be a part of this amazing series of novels set in our own backyard. It just seemed a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We wrote ‘Meet Me On the Equinox’ to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight series and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters. This song marks the first attempt that Death Cab for Cutie has ever made at contributing new, unreleased material for a film and we are proud to be a part of the Twilight legacy.”

The soundtrack will be on sale Oct. 20, 2009. You can pre-order you copy at Amazon by clicking here.
