Metric go to a secluded location in a music video for their new single "Eclipse (All Yours)". In the middle of nowhere, they are seen occupied with the songwriting of "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" soundtrack while footage from the vampire movie is sometimes displayed on a TV screen.
When Metric was asked to write a theme song for the Robert Pattinson-starring flick, they knew nothing about the book and the big screen adaptation. But, Howard Shore considered their lack of knowledge about the vampire saga was a good thing because he wanted the anthem to be penned "from the perspective of the character."
"Since then, I've learned a little bit more about how Muse plays into the books, and the larger themes. But I think it's good I went into it just looking at the character," the band's member Emily Haines told MTV when attending the world premiere of the movie at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
The soundtrack compilation has been released since June 8, while the movie will not open in theaters across United States on June 30.
