Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Soundtrack Listing Finally Announced

The tracklisting for Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 has finally been announced, via Yahoo and amongst the highlights of this latest instalment are Green Day, Passion Pit and Ellie Goulding. Green Day, obviously are a pretty big coup for the compilers of the soundtrack (Summit Entertainment release the album in collaboration with Chop Shop Records and Atlantic Records) and the band’s bass player Mike Dirnt spoke to Yahoo! about contributing their track ‘The Forgotten’ and said “When we were asked to be part of the 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' soundtrack, we readily agreed because the films are an insane cultural phenomenon, and we have always been impressed with the way the 'Twilight' soundtracks are so carefully curated.”

Ellie Goulding’s track will draw attention to the soundtrack too, not only because it’s an exclusive track but because it’s the first track that she’s released, to have been produced by her new boyfriend Skrillex. Following in the vein of slightly kooky female artists, St. Vincent and Feist have both contributed a track; both will undoubtedly make an excellent accompaniment to the dark, moody atmosphere of the Twilight movie.

Coming from a slightly more mainstream angle, Christina Perri returns with ‘A Thousand Years (Part Two)’. Naturally, it’s a follow on from her theme to the first installment of Breaking Dawn and Perri was almost a dead cert to be included on this final musical bow. She’s such a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga that she has the word ‘Bitten’ tattooed on her, in the Twilight font. She told Yahoo! “I am so honored and excited to be involved again in this final film and soundtrack.” She revealed that part two of the track will be different but hasn’t yet said how and the tracks are yet to be released. “It's not the same [as the original]... you'll just have to wait and see how,” she teased.

The appeal of the Twilight franchise soundtracks is huge; both for the artists and the audience. For the artists, they are guaranteed an enormous global audience for their music. For the fans, it’s a chance to pick up exclusive tracks from the musicians that have been selected for the soundtrack. Alexandra Patsavas has compiled the track-listing for the album and has done a pretty good job of combining niche acts such as Passion Pit, with global stars like Green Day, making the soundtrack a pretty satisfying purchase for die-hard Twi-hards and dedicated music fanatics.

Here’s the full tracklisting:

1. Where I Come From — Passion Pit 2. Bittersweet — Ellie Goulding 3. The Forgotten — Green Day 4. Fire In The Water — Feist 5. Everything And Nothing — The Boom Circuits 6. The Antidote — St. Vincent 7. Speak Up — POP ETC 8. Heart of Stone — Iko 9. Cover Your Tracks — A Boy and His Kite 10. Ghosts — James Vincent McMorrow 11. All I've Ever Needed — Paul McDonald & Nikki Reed 12. New For You — Reeve Carney 13. A Thousand Years (Part Two) - Christina Perri 14. Plus Que Ma Prope Vie — Carter Burwell

Hunting for the tracks will prove futile just yet; the soundtrack will be released on November 13, 2012, three days before the movie finally hits the cinemas and we can all stop worrying about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s relationship and start focusing on Bella and Edward’s!
