The soundtrack album to the new Twilight Breaking Dawn part 1 film has been revealed, including R'n'B singer/songwriter Bruno Mars
Making a surprise Twilight-debut appearance on the soundtrack is R’n’B singer/songwriter Bruno Mars with his lead song It Will Rain.
Mars will be the first to release his single from the album and is joined by the likes of The Noisettes, Christina Perri, and rockers The Joy Formidable, who were particularly surprised by their first place spot on the soundtrack as they have never even read or seen the Twilight series.
British band Hard-Fi feature on a deluxe version with another Bruno Mars track, but Muse, who’s songs have become synonymous with the Twilight series, are nowhere to be seen.
It’s the first Twilight movie soundtrack not to feature a song by Muse who are the favourite band of the Twilight saga’s author Stephenie Meyer, who dedicated her books to them.
Robert Pattinson’s songs have also not made the cut on this album. With the lead-actor trying to also make it in the music industry Twilight producers had previously helped him showcase his singing talents on the soundtracks.
Bruno Mars’ track It Will Rain will be available as a single in the UK on 31 October. The soundtrack in full will be available everywhere from 8 November, a week ahead of the film release.We can not wait to hear it!
