When “Twilight” fans watch “Eclipse,” they’ll be inspired just like author Stephenie Meyer is when she writes.
That’s right. The band Muse, whom Meyer listens to when she’s dreaming up heartbreaking scenarios for Bella, will appear on the “Eclipse” soundtrack.
“The first single on ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse — Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ has just been confirmed and I get to bring you the exclusive details,” writes Meyer’s webmaster Seth on her official site. “Stephenie’s very favorite band, Muse, has contributed a song called ‘Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever)’ and it’s the first single from the project.”
]]>tweeting, “A brand new Muse song will be released worldwide on Monday May 17th! The track, ‘Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)’ was written and recorded by the band earlier this year and has been chosen to be the lead single from the soundtrack of the forthcoming Twilight film ‘Eclipse.'”
Besides Meyer’s being a huge fan of Muse, having them on the “Eclipse” soundtrack was a no-brainer. Director David Slade had helmed a few of Muse’s videos for their second album.
“Eclipse” itself will open worldwide in theaters on Wednesday, June 30.
