Muse Already Thinking About ‘Eclipse’ Soundtrack

Betsy Waldman / October 15, 2009

The New Moon soundtrack isn’t even out yet, but the band Muse is already think ahead.

The band is definitely becoming “that Twilight band,” as they had the single “Supermassive Black Hole” on the first film’s soundtrack, and the new track “I Belong to You” on the New Moon album, out Friday.

And, by the looks of things, there will definitely be a slot for Muse on the Eclipse soundtrack.

Drummer Dominic Howard told MTV News,

It’s great to have the feeling of being a new band again in so many people’s eyes or minds … we might even do something for the third on. How about that for a scoop?”

While nothings confirmed, it doesn’t hurt that they’re not only a favorite of Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight series, but they’re also friends with Eclipse director David Slade.

“[Slade is] kind of a friend of ours ’cause he directed about three or four of our videos for the second album, and he’s a really great video director, I know he did that really great kind of sick horror [film ’30 Days of Night’] which was a bit of a vampire/zombie vibe, wasn’t it? So I think he’s a great director, and he’s quite a funny character as well. So, yeah, we might do something for him as well.”

Twi-hards, are you ready for more Muse?
