It sure looks like New Moon director Chris Weitz is trying to build anticipation for the second installment of the Twilight series by boasting about its awesome soundtrack. As previously reported, Thom Yorke has shown interest in submitting a song, as well as Radiohead, Muse, and Band of Skulls. Now HitFix.com confirms (via Pitchfork) that Yorke has in fact submitted a tune, as well as Bon Iver.
Strangely, Weitz claims he hasn’t even listened to the Yorke song yet, but “unless it’s sounds of him belching,” he said, “I think I’ll put it in.”
What’s more, last year’s breakout singer/songwriter dude Bon Iver is also on board. “I think [Bon Iver] is fantastic,” Weitz added. “He says he wrote it for the film, but who ever knows if it might just be something laying around in his cupboard.”
I think he should be happy with the playlist so far, but Weitz is still shooting for a Kings of Leon track as well. No worries though, folks, as soon as he books KOL, I’m sure we’ll be hearing all about it.
