“Eclipse” soundtrack details still scarce

By Kim Palacios

With the June 8th release of the “Eclipse” soundtrack on the horizon, fans had hoped to know more about the track lineup by now. The album went on sale on Amazon around April 19th, sparking hope that a listing of artists and songs would soon follow. Some two weeks later, though Summit reached out to fans through the official Twilight Facebook site to share other key news about the films (e.g., Bill Condon to direct “Breaking Dawn” and Stephenie Meyer to produce), it seems to have slowed down with news about “Eclipse”.

April 23rd was the date that the “Eclipse” theatrical trailer and official web site went public, and a live chat with three cast members was held; this could have been an opportunity to follow-up the pre-sale release with a bit of info about the soundtrack, yet details were conspicuously absent from forthcoming news.

Despite lack of information, Amazon pre-sales seem to be doing well. As of the writing of this article, Amazon lists the “Eclipse” soundtrack as ranked at #82 in music, #72 in the pop genre and #11 in soundtracks. Given the popularity of the first two soundtracks, optimism about the third is hardly surprising. Still, fans should not ignore that “Twilight”, “New Moon”, and “Eclipse” all had different production teams, and, consequently, had different approaches to choosing the music. Indeed, the “Twilight” soundtrack was better-loved than that of “New Moon”.

So, what could score the “Eclipse” soundtrack a home run? More memorable hits like Muse’s “Supermassive Black Hole” and Paramore’s “Decode”. Fans also seem to love the idea of including more music that includes the stars of the film, and would welcome an encore from Rob or the addition of a song from Jackson Rathbone’s band, 100 Monkeys.
