Only 43 more days, Twi-hards.
We're obviously talking about the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2 (as if you need any reminding, it hits theaters Nov. 16), but in case you can't wait, Summit Entertainment has delivered a little sliver of Twilight heaven by releasing the set list for the sweet soundtrack.
Although Green Day may seem like an unlikely choice for the vamptastic soundtrack, the Twilight films have been known for their carefully crafted albums since the saga's beginning:
"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," bassist Mike Dirnt told Yahoo! of the group's decision to appear on the album.
Lovebirds Nikki Reed (who plays Rosalie in the flick) and hubby Paul McDonald will also collaborate on a song for the album titled "All I've Ever Needed." The couple took to Twitter to share their excitement with Twilight fans.
The soundtrack also marks the return of Christina Perri—the self-proclaimed Twi-hard who penned a Bella and Edward ode for the first Breaking Dawn Part 1 album. Her follow-up tune—titled "A Thousand Years (Part Two)"—is the second to last track on the CD.
"im so honored + excited to be involved again in the final @Twilight film + soundtrack! "a thousand years (part two)" features @stevekazee :)," Perri posted on her Twitter.
Other artists on the soundtrack tweeted their enthusiasm as well:
@reevecarney: "Hey twitter-verse, I am thrilled to announce my involvement with the following...!!!special thanks to BC and AG :)"
