Muse already provided one of the musical high points for the first “Twilight” film when their “Supermassive Black Hole” played during the vampire baseball scene. Now, singer Matt Bellamy has confirmed that Stephenie Meyer’s favorite band will do the honors again by providing a reworked tune from their new album, The Resistance, for the soundtrack of the film’s sequel, “New Moon.”
Speaking to MTV UK, Bellamy said that “New Moon” director Chris Weitz had spoken to him recently about doing a remix of the quirky piano tune “I Belong to You.”
“He wants a rendition of that, but the only thing with the new film is they want the songs to be exclusive to the film,” Bellamy said. “So he’s asking if I mind doing, or if we mind doing an alternative version of it.”
The song starts out as a swooning piano ballad, before switching into a dramatic, 1940s-style Gallic weeper in which Bellamy croons in French. While they’ve released four albums and are playing stadiums in their native England, it was the placement of “Black Hole” in “Twilight” that helped Muse gain a foothold in the United States.
