hollywoodnews.com: According to the Recording Industry Association of America(RIAA), the “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” Original Soundtrack has gone Gold. The album, featuring artists such as Muse, The Black Keys, and Vampire Weekend was originally released in June of 2010 and won Gold certification in December.
Though the soundtrack follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, the honor was slower to arrive for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” soundtrack went Platinum just one month after its release. The “Twilight” soundtrack also went Platinum within a month of its release before going Double Platinum some four months later.
Still to come is a soundtrack for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”, though it is unclear as to how or whether a soundtrack will be split into two in alignment with the movies. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” is set to release in the U.S. on November 18th, 2011.
