Previously announced artists include Vampire Weekend, Muse, Beck and the Dead Weather.By James Montgomery
We already knew about Muse, and, then, throughout the day on Wednesday (May 12), we gradually added even more names to the list — Vampire Weekend, Beck and the Bravery, to rattle off just a few. And now, finally, we know it all: every artist that will contribute a song to the much-anticipated "Eclipse" soundtrack.
Yes, over the course of seven very long hours, the folks at MySpace Music gradually revealed the list of artists and songs that would appear on the album, due June 8. Now, that list is complete.
From the looks of things, it's shaping up to be a pretty excellent affair. In addition to the previously announced artists, we get a whole lot of indie (Florence and the Machine, Metric, Sia and Band of Horses); genuine fist-pumping, throat-ripping rock and roll (from Jack White's the Dead Weather and Akron thumpers the Black Keys); ominous electro (UNKLE, who team up with the Black Angels on a track); oddball hip-hop (from Cee-Lo Green); and even some of the classy stuff, courtesy of Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore, who weighs in with "Jacob's Theme."
As announced on author Stephenie Meyer's website last week, the first single from the "Eclipse" soundtrack is slated to be Muse's rather epically titled "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)," which will hit radio Monday.
