It appears despite previous reports that Muse will not be on the Eclipse soundtrack, that decision might have been reversed. Twilight Examiner reports the most recent update
TA caught up with someone from Chop Shop Music (and Atlantic Records) who confirmed that Muse would indeed be on the soundtrack for Eclipse!
A few weeks back, the news that Muse would not appear on the album rocked the fandom - which, for the most part, believes Muse is one of if not the most important contributors on the forthcoming album.
Originally, the story that Muse wouldn't appear on the album came from a Californian source that quoted Dominic Howard to say the band would not be appearing on the album thanks to "business"-related issues - not for lack of interest.
Their interest in being a part of the album, in fact, was expressed to MTV back in October of last year.
TA estimates that since SxSW was attended by both the band and Atlantic, they may have come to some sort of arrangement there.
If the source is correct, and a deal was worked out which would include Muse on the Eclipse album, it's a great day for some of us!
I think we ALL agree that Muse is the most important artist to possibly appear on any of the Twilight soundtracks. I just saw Muse 4 days ago, live in Fort Worth Texas, and while I was already a Muse fan, I'm now a Muse FANATIC. I have to say, Muse not being on the soundtrack was a huge blow for me. So MAYBE this is a light at the end of the tunnel?
