We already knew about Bruno Mars’ involvement in the upcoming “Breaking Dawn” soundtrack. But now — officially — we know who will be joining him.
Theophilus London, the Joy Formidable, Iron & Wine, Christina Perri and the Noisettes are just some of the acts confirmed for the “Dawn” soundtrack, which hits stores on November 8 (10 days before “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ bows in theaters). The full track list was unveiled Monday (September 26) afternoon on the official “Twilight” Twitter account, confirming speculations that sprung up over the weekend, when a listing of artists and songs began making the rounds on various fansites.
Work by “Twilight”-series composer Carter Burwell and actress Mia Maestro (she plays Carmen of the Denali Cover in the “Breaking Dawn” films) also shows up on the soundtrack, as do songs by Angus and Julia Young, the Features, the Belle Brigade and Cider Sky. All in all, there are 15 tracks on the album, and all — aside from a “Wedding Version” of Iron & Wine’s “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” (as any good Twilighter will tell you, the original version of the song appeared on the first “Twilight” soundtrack) and an updated take on Noisettes’ “Sister Rosetta” — are new.
