New Moon Soundtrack Update: Release Date, Featured Band

by at . Comments

Despite exciting rumors that Adam Lambert would be featured on the New Moon soundtrack, we can now confirm that this won't be the case.

But dry those tears, fans: the film has found a suitable replace for the movie's first single.

The Death Cab for Cutie song “Meet Me On the Equinox” will debut on September 13 at the MTV Music Awards. It was written specifically for New Moon and chosen as the featured tune over recordings by Thom Yorke, Bon Iver and Muse, all of whom will appear on the album.

Said Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer:

"We didn't expect it would be chosen for the first single — we were thinking it would be a part of the soundtrack, maybe... It's been an exciting process, because we've been so removed from it. We were in L.A. for a week and we went into the studio and wrote and recorded the song and submitted it. We didn't know where anything stood, and then we just got a call last week."

The New Moon soundtrack is now available for pre-order for at Amazon.com for $9.99. It will be released on October 20.
