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

My Favorite Album: Alex Lahey on The Killers’ “Hot Fuss”

“It was the first time I heard a record on my own accord, that my parent hadn’t shown me, that was a really, really, really great album.”

Oct 06, 2020

I think I was about 12 or 13 when it came out, but I think I really got into it when I was about 14. I was sort of resistant to it for a little while, I think because it was a really successful record and I was sort of getting into my stage, you know how we all go through that stage—some people never get out of it—where they try to resist what’s popular.

Aug 25, 2021

In the spirit of every great band who made it to the top and managed to remain within that vicinity, The Killers have retained their glitz and bombast for 17 years, while leaving their creative evolutionary process on proud display for all to see. More

Nov 01, 2008

The rock video for “Humans” visually checks off all The Killers’ typical glitzy signifiers (see the prowling white tiger amongst the crimson mesas). After Brandon Flowers and Co. plunked down their version of The Boss’s Americana, they now reinvent(!) themselves with Tropicália-Western songs (“I Can’t Stay” and “Joy Ride”). More
