Muse band member admits to selling his soul to headline Twilight “Eclipse” album

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme finally confessed to what many fans were already thinking—that the band sold its soul to record the headlining single on the soundtrack for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. The track, “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”, is a huge diversion from the band’s library of edgy and otherwise sophisticated songs. Said the rocker to BBC’s Newsbeat, “I’m not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you’ve just got to get your music out there in different ways.”

The lyrics tell the tale. Even other Muse songs used in earlier Twilight films are not as watered down as the “Eclipse” film headlining track. Whereas “Supermassive Black Hole” (which was heard on the “Twilight” movie soundtrack) uses quantum physics as a metaphor for tortured love, “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)” repeats the same set of pedestrian lyrics (“Our love would be forever. And if we died, we’d die together”) over and over.

“It’s very difficult in America because you don’t have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national,” continued the star. “You have to take every opportunity you get over there and sometimes you have to sell your soul.”
