Late last night we shared the news with you in regards to the upcoming soundtrack for Eclipse, the third installment of the Twilight series. Although a couple of movie stars may be holding production back by demanding a pay raise, Alexandra Patsavas and her people at Chop Shop Records and Atlantic Records are ready to share the music with you. Exciting, right? Even if you’re not a Twilight fan, you have to admit the last soundtrack was pretty rad with their choice to go for a “softer” indie touch.
The con to this soundtrack track list? We’re going to have to wait all day to have the final list of songs and artists much like we had to wait all day for the Bonnaroo lineup… The track list will reveal itself here but we’ve got the first batch of artists who are on the Eclipse soundtrack below! We’ll be updating it here on the site until we have them all! Check it out so far after the jump!
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Soundtrack track list:

Finally! The entire track list for Twilight’s Eclipse has been revealed. Does it live up to your expectations after the last one? Here’s what we think…
It looks like the Twilight sound is trying to keep a good first impression by continuing with the indie rock theme – which we’re stoked about. It’s obviously not a surprise to see Muse on the track list again as they are Stephanie Meyer’s favorite band and “muse” (get it?) for the teen-drama vampire series. However, we are surprised to see some fresh faces from overseas such as pop sensation of Australia, Sia and London-based group, Fanfarlo. These are obscure enough to have mainstream listeners broaden their musical horizons but what about the big names?
Even after Death Cab For Cutie had the lead single for New Moon, seeing Vampire Weekend, The Dead Weather, and The Black Keys makes us wonder: Are they just trying to be more hip than the last time? Never in a million years did we think Beck nor The Black Keys would provide music for a teen franchise such as this. However, we don’t have much room to complain. We’re definitely digging this album way more than the “inspired” Almost Alice album.
Two artists who stand out? Eastern Conference Champions may have the only track which caters to the fans of the first Twilight album which featured the likes Paramore and Linkin Park, but they seem to pale in comparison when it comes to the rest of the rosters’ worldwide fan bases. Oh, and Cee-Lo on a Twilight soundtrack? We’re not mad about that at all… Vampires just got a little funk and soul to help them out.
What do you think of the track list so far?
