Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, St Vincent also appear on the album
Green Day have confirmed they’ll be contributing new track ‘The Forgotten’ to the Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack.
The punk trio join Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, St Vincent and Feist on the soundtrack for the upcoming final installment in the vampire saga, in cinemas November 16.
‘The Forgotten’ has been taken from Green Day’s ‘¡Tré!’, the third album in the band’s new trilogy of records, which is to be released on January 14 next year.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, bassist Mike Dirnt revealed the band have always been fans of the blockbuster franchise, saying: “When we were asked to be part of the Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack, we readily agreed because the films are an insane cultural phenomenon, and we have always been impressed with the way the ‘Twilight’ soundtracks are so carefully curated.”
The soundtrack also features ‘Bittersweet’ by Ellie Goulding, which has been produced by her EDM superstar DJ boyfriend Skrillex. The album is released on November 13.
Last month, Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong checked himself into rehab after having an on-stage meltdown at the band’s Las Vegas gig. The singer broke down on stage, yelling: “What the fuck! I’m not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherfuckers.”
Green Day released their new album ‘iUno!’, last month. The rest of the band’s new album trilogy, ‘¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!’, will be released in two other stages – with the second LP, ‘¡Dos!’, coming out on November 12 and ‘¡Tré!’ on January 14, 2013.
Recently, the band announced a huge UK stadium show for next summer. The trio will headline London’s 60,000 capacity Emirates Stadium on June 1, 2013. Tickets for the show will go on sale September 28.
