While you were busy applauding Beyoncé’s resolution of the Taylor Swift/Kanye West crisis, you probably forgot to log on to mtv.com to hear the first single from the Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack. As we’ve noted, the vampire flick might feature Radiohead, Bon Iver, and Muse, and definitely features noted Pacific Northwest bloodsuckers Death Cab For Cutie, who penned “Meet Me On The Equinox” expressly for the film. According to Ben Gibbard it’s “about meeting another halfway, because life is very short,” a theme which applies both to teenage vampires in love and also the fans of indie rock bands who suddenly find their favorite groups soundtracking flicks about teenage vampires in love.
