Perry Farrell & Paramore Added To ‘Twilight’ Soundtrack
  |  @   |  

Slowly but surely we’re finding out which bands will be included in the soundtrack to the Twilight movie starring Kristen Stewart as Bella and Robert Pattinson as Edward.

Perry Farrell told NY Mag that he’s writing a “crucial song” for Twilight, tentatively titled “Going All The Way (Into the Twilight),” which will be a solo project for him. The former Jane’s Addiction frontman didn’t go into specifics on what the song would be about or who would be performing on it.

In other news, MTV reports that the band Paramore will have two new songs — once called “Decode, which is about Bella and Edward’s love affair; the other still-untitled — on the film’s soundtrack, which will be released on November 4. (Some of you might remember Paramore as the band at the MTV VMA’s that Robert Pattinson was trying to introduce when the show’s host Russell Brand interrupted him.)

Paramore’s singer/frontwomen Hayley Williams, a self-professed Twilight devotee, talked a bit about her inspiration for “Decode.”

“I chose the title ‘Decode’ because the song is about the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward,” she said. “Bella is the only mind Edward can’t read, and I feel like that’s a big part of the first book and one of the obstacles for them to overcome. It’s one added tension that makes the story even better.”

Back in July at SDCC, the film’s director Catherine Hardwicke announced that Muse (Twilight author Stephenie Meyer‘s favorite band) would contribute a song, while star Robert Pattinson would add two of his own compositions.

  1. I’m not a fan of paramore, but I’m glad that the soundtrack is getting such big names. I’m not sure how the punk thing will work in the movie, but i have faith in the gal that is picking the music.

    I’m actually quite surprised that Perry farrell is involved. That is awesome, though i know some of the younger fans most likely have no idea whom he is. I like Janes addiction, and Perry great talent, I can totally see him pulling off something dark. This is going to be interesting. one thought though…

    Where’s all the INDIE MUSIC?!! I want some lesser known bands on this soundtrack. I’m not a fan of all this mainstream stuff.

  4. My Chemical Romance would be an awesome choice, and not because they are ‘mainstream.’ They have some heavy stuff that would fit perfectly into the movie.
    Marianas Trench could probably take the words right out of Edward’s mouth with their lyrics, plus their high up beats are worth while.
    Paramore is one of my favourite bands, I’m glad they are in the soundtrack, but they need to put Coldplay (I think) to make the movie just…fit.

    Muse was also, a very smart choice.
