The tracklisting for the upcoming Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack was announced today, and it features Muse, The Dead Weather, The Black Keys and - hey, what do you know? - Vampire Weekend!

A group with 'vampire' in their name contributing to a film about a bunch of brooding bloodsuckers. Funny ol' world, isn't it?

Like last year's soundtrack to Twilight: New Moon, the Eclipse soundtrack leans heavy on indie acts. It also marks the third appearance of Muse in the mega-successful franchise. Their song Supermassive Black Hole figured prominently in the first picture, and a remix of I Belong To You made the New Moon set. This time, however, they've contributed a brand-new song called Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever), which be the first single from Eclipse.
