New Moon Soundtrack: Thom Yorke and Kings of Leon?

There's been a lot of speculation about which artists will appear on the soundtrack for the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon.

And now New Moon director Chris Weitz has revealed some choice picks to Rotten Tomatoes.

"Alexandre Desplat has just started working on his music for the film, and we are just starting to put together what bands are on the soundtrack, so it's kind of like keeping ten plates spinning at once," Weitz notes. "Fortunately, I'm not at the stage where I have to turn anybody down yet, because everything is still kind of up in the air, but I am surprised at some of the bands that have said they're interested. It's kind of great. The criterion will still always be what's right for the movie at that given moment, but Thom Yorke is interested; we might, if we're very lucky, get Kings of Leon to do something... it's exciting to be able to have access to this kind of talent."

Of course, Yorke's band Radiohead closed out Twilight with their song "15 Step," from their album In Rainbows.

Tell us in the comments section: Do you think these would be good choices, and who else do you think should be on the New Moon soundtrack?

    I hope it's as original as the first soundtrack. It would be a disappointment if they just put bands that are popular on there. Kings of Leon would be awesome though, I think they fit the vibe of the Twilight Saga.

    Going Under by Evanescence is a perfect song for the torment that Bella experiences being separated from Edward. And they have other angst ridden songs that would work for New Moon too. Please get Evanescence, they're music would be perfect !!! omg i thought i was the only one thinkin about that song yes they would make the best song ever for newmoon

    I am amused by that. Thom Yorke and Twilight seem like two completely different audiences to me.

    Thom Yorke played the ending song from the movie The Prestige. The song was awesome and it really hits you hard with the lyrics so I vote for him abd King of Leon

    They should use Muse and Coldplay. I can`t think on some better choices for the movie. If you search the New Moon playlist on SM`s site there are so many good songs !. I think they should use some of them.

    As long as its along the vein of slightly-off mainstream, it will be good. I'm sure they are nice guys, but no Jonas Brothers please - LOL

    Another one that's perfect is Wake Me Up inside "Bring me to Life", the words totally talk about how only he can wake her up and bring her to life again. She's saying "wake up me up inside, save me from the nothing I've become". That's totally how Bella feels with Edward gone, this total emptiness, loneliness, numbness.
