Muse will contribute to 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' soundtrack?

If the releases of Remember Me, The Runaways, The Twilight Saga: New Moon on DVD, Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 1, and Twilight In Forks this month weren't enough to make March one month of particular excitement for Twilight fans, this last bit of news might just tip the scale.

Twilighters Anonymous sent a reporter to this year's South by Southwest Festival (SxSW) where Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack contributors (and literal muse band for the series' author Stephenie Meyer) Muse was playing.

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!
