Featuring a song written by Ryan Tedder and performed by Sky Ferreira, the music video mixes season 1 and 2 scenes.
In anticipation of "The Vampire Diaries" season 1 soundtrack release, The CW has mashed up the lead single "Obsession" by Sky Ferreira with the show's scenes. To harmonize the tune with the footage, most of the selected scenes are those of kisses and love obsessions between Stefan and Elena, Caroline and Matt and so on.
Ferreira made a buzz earlier this year with the viral videos of her songs "17" and "One". She is working on her debut album with a number of acclaimed producers including Bloodshy & Avant, Ryan Tedder, and Linda Austin. "I'm interested in telling stories about youth and desire," Ferreira said. "Not love though, because I haven't experienced that yet." The effort will be released on January 11, 2011.
Meanwhile, the soundtrack compilation will be released on October 21 under EMI Records. Beside Ferreira, there will be contributions from Placebo, Bat for Lashes, Goldfrapp, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Silversun Pickups among others. The 18 songs list as well as pre-order can be found on Amazon.
