New Moon Tune Exclusive
With the release of ’The Twilight: New Moon’ soundtrack today (October 16), we have a special treat for MTV.com.au viewers – a Beyond The Video look at Death Cab For Cutie’s ’Meet Me At The Equinox’.
Click on the vid below to watch the making of the music clip in all its moody glory.
On writing the track, Death Cab bassist Nick Harmer said: “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. It just seems a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We are not only proud to be a part of the Twilight legacy but also honored to join so many other fantastic artists that have leant their amazing creativity to this soundtrack.”
The fangtastic soundtrack also features tracks from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, The Killers, Band of Skulls, Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver and St. Vincent, Lykke Li and Anya Marina.
Also included is a remix from ‘Twilight’ author Stephanie Meyer’s favourite band, Muse.
