"New Moon" Track List Reveals New Music From Thom Yorke, Killers, Muse

September 21, 2009 2:53 PM ET

The track list for the upcoming soundtrack for Twilight sequel New Moon was revealed today on author Stephanie Meyer's official Website. In addition to Death Cab for Cutie's first single "Meet Me on the Equinox," the soundtrack will feature contributions from Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Muse, Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver (who duets with fellow Breaking artist St. Vincent) and the Killers.

As it turns out, Yorke's song on the New Moon soundtrack is neither of the two tracks featured on his new single "Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses" b/w "The Hollow Earth." The Radiohead frontman has recorded a new song called "Hearing Damage" for the disc, which is out October 20th, a month to the day before New Moon hits theaters. The Killers also provided a new track called "A White Demon Love Song," while Muse remixed their The Resistance song "I Belong to You for the soundtrack.

New Moon will also feature new music from Lykke Li, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Band of Skulls, Sea Wolf, Hurricane Bells, Anya Marina, Editors and the film's composer Alexandre Desplat. OK Go, who gave the film a new track called "Shooting the Moon," talked to Rolling Stone earlier this year about their tune, which they described as a sad song written from the perspective of an astronaut.

1. Death Cab For Cutie - "Meet Me On The Equinox"

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
