Twilight: New Moon Soundtrack Listing Confirmed

Features Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, The Killers, St. Vincent, Bon Iver and Lykke Li

Sep 21, 2009

The official soundtrack for 2008's Twilight wasn't much to sniff about (kind of like the movie). Only a few scant cuts from blood letters Paramore and Linkin Park littered the tracklisting. Conversely, the marketing blitz for Twilight sequel New Moon has been nothing short of buzz-worthy and downright confusing. The final tracklisting was announced today on Myspace and writer Stephanie Meyer's website and it's just as ripe for hipsterdom's cognitive dissonance as we surmised. More

Interviews

Jul 09, 2014

When I ask Lykke Li if her songwriting process is cathartic, she seems to feel insulted. It's a lazy question, I admit, one that's almost guaranteed to elicit a certain answer from a songwriter who writes songs so full of insecurity, restlessness, and self-reproach.  More

Jul 08, 2014

Lykke Li does not want to be a pop star—she wants to make that clear. Though recent years have eroded much of the boundary, as well as the stigma, separating the pop and non-pop worlds, she nonetheless expresses frustration over the fact that after seven years of writing and singing her own songs she is still categorized more with pop singers than singer/songwriters. More

On her 2008 debut Youth Novels, Lykke Li scored a hit with "I'm Good, I'm Gone" by essentially rewriting Lee Dorsey's "Working in a Coal Mine." A clever piece of repositioning for sure, but as part of an album notable for its experimentation, it remained unclear if she could replicate its earwormy success without retread. The answer? Yes. And no. More
