Metric Blogs About the Eclipse Soundtrack Experience

The band Metric was one of the first reveals on the eclipse Soundtrack listing yesterday. What we didn’t know at the time is that legendary composer Howard Shore, who is doing the score, collaborated with the band Metric on their contribution!

On the band’s MySpace blog, Emily, the lead singer, writes:

“Yes … It’s official. Our song “All Yours”, co-written with the legendary film composer Howard Shore and performed by Metric, is going to be featured in the movie Eclipse, the next installment in the worldwide phenomenon known as the Twilight saga.

I’ve always wanted to write music for film, but I never expected to start with something on this scale, so you can imagine how surprised I was when out of nowhere I got a phone call from Howard Shore, who I’d never met or even spoken with before. Most people know him as the man who wrote the acclaimed score for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but I grew up on Shore’s earlier works– his score for David Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch in collaboration with jazz great Ornette Coleman still stands as one of the most ambitious & unusual scores out there.

To my amazement, Howard was calling to ask me to work with him on his latest project: scoring the next Twilight movie, Eclipse. He wanted Jimmy & I to write the theme song for the pivotal last scene in the movie,
integrating the music from his existing score into a composition that would express the emotional ending of the film. Seriously?!?! The lyrics would have to be in the voice of the main character Bella, and we had to stay within the confines of harmonic and melodic themes Howard had in mind for the last scene.”

  1. This is fantastic. Metric is one of my favorite bands and Howard Shore is so talented. Cannot wait to hear this and the rest of the soundtrack!!

  2. After reading the blog, I am extremely excited about this song. That they collaborated directly with Shore is outstanding. Can’t wait.

  3. Hmm…wonder where they end the movie?!?! In the meadow where Bella and Edward decide on the wedding, or like the book with Jacob getting the invite and phasing and running off…Can’t wait!!!

    • This song will probably be at the end of the movie and it probably will show Bella and Edward kissing and then cut to Jacob getting the wedding invite and running away. I hated Jacob in the book and i was so glad when he got his and he had to face the fact that Bella love Edward so much more than she ever loved him. But i love the actor that is playing Jacob and when i think about him in that scene it makes me want to cry. Oh and by the way i have been looking at some Eclipse stills with E/B and i don’t think the meadow scene is the one that we think it is. I think they change it. I think it is the one where she and Edward are standing up and holding each other. She has on a yellowish top and you can see the engagement ring on her finger. Sorry to go on and on but i am so excited about this movie.

  4. they must be going to end it with Bella and Edward in the meadow when he puts the ring on her finger. she said it’s the pivotal last scene of the movie from Bella’s p.o.v. wonder if they will show Jacob taking off or if they will end it with Bella and Edward to lead into the wedding for Breaking Dawn.

  5. I hear ya too. They were the best.
