Valentines Day is around the corner and for those seeking a bright, romantic gift there are dozens of upbeat, breezy soundtracks out there. But for those who crave a little more… darkness…this new compilation is the only one to have.
Inspired by the Twilight Saga films and the multi-million selling film soundtracks, The Twilight Saga ‘Forever’ contains 34 haunting love songs, all chosen to reflect the love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob – the three main characters (a central concept in the series), making this the perfect ‘alternative’ love album for Valentine’s Day.
The vampish track list includes some massive artists such as Death Cab For Cutie (‘Meet Me On The Equinox’), Green Day (‘The Forgotten’) and Bruno Mars (‘It Will Rain’). The 2CD set also features many artists whose association with Twilight has brought them sudden critical acclaim and huge audiences. Check out Christina Perri, whose track ‘A Thousand Years’ was picked from obscurity for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Or Imperial Mammoth, the dark-edged LA husband-and-wife duo, whose haunting song ‘Requiem on Water’ closes the album. When they first got their Twilight break – again on Breaking Dawn – singer Leonard Jackson said the sudden rush of fans and fame was ‘almost mind numbing’.
