Coldplay ‘very likely’ for ‘New Moon’
Coldplay could “very likely” feature on the soundtrack to New Moon, according to the band’s official website. The group’s Q&A page, managed by themselves and their handlers, hinted that there is a strong possibility that a Coldplay track could be selected for the highly-anticipated sequel to vampire romance Twilight. “It’s very likely that a Coldplay song will end up on the soundtrack to the Twilight sequel,” read one response to a fan query. “Given that [author] Stephenie Meyer has credited Coldplay, among others, on the inner sleeve for ‘being instrumental in staving off the writer’s block’.” Meyer has often credited her favourite bands for inspiring her writing. Other musicians to get a name check in her book credits include Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance and Muse. Paramore, who featured on the original soundtrack, recently played down speculation that they would contribute any further songs to the franchise, while My Chemical Romance have also ruled out the likelihood of a collaboration.
