After Thom Yorke, Bon Iver & St. Vincent, and Grizzly Bear & Beach House made soundtracks to multi-million dollar hormonal-teenage-vampires-in-love franchises a safe place for indie artists to premiere their wares, you had to figure more folks from Stereogum’s tag cloud would lineup at the chance to lure Bella & Edward heads from the land of the wasted youth. Every half-hour for the next bunch of hours (because WEB STRATEGY), the folks behind The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight trilogy, will be revealing (on MySpace, whatever that is) another track title from the film’s OST. So far, so indie, and also so vampire-punny: Beck and Bat For Lashes (+1 point for Alex Patsavas there) offer the collab track “Let’s Get Lost,” and Vampire Weekend (nice) contribute the original “Jonathan Low.” Also on board: Metric with a title track of sorts in “Eclipse (All Yours),” the Black Keys (“Heavy In Your Arms”), the Dead Weather, Fanfarlo, and Florence + The Machine. Full list, updated as they come, below:

01. Metric – “Eclipse (All Yours)”
02. Muse – “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”
03. The Bravery – “Ours”
04. Florence + the Machine – “Heavy in Your Arms”
05. Sia – “My Love”
06. Fanfarlo – “Atlas”
07. Metallica – “Blackened”
08. The Black Keys – “Chop and Change”
09. The Dead Weather – “Rolling in on a Burning Tire”
10. Beck and Bat for Lashes – “Let’s Get Lost”
11. Vampire Weekend – “Jonathan Low”
12. UNKLE featuring The Black Angels – “With You in My Head”
13. Eastern Conference Champions – “A Million Miles an Hour”
14. Band of Horses – “Life on Earth”
15. Cee-Lo Green – “What Part of Forever”
16. Howard Shore – “Jacob’s Theme”
