But then again, maybe not.

Right this moment, you can head over to Amazon and stream the entire New Moon soundtrack. That’s right, you can listen to tracks 1 – 15 as much as you want before the actual album release date! The only catch is that you’re only given 30 second clips for each song. We know; what a tease!
However, 30 seconds of one of most highly anticipated compilation put together for a film just might be worth it. You can finally hear what Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver & St. Vincent have secretly been cooking up.
