Guess what Fanpires? We've got more news on Twilight's killer soundtrack! Is anyone else loving the constant stream of teasing information that borders on the line of rumor? I know I am. Anyway, the newest newsflash is that a singer I've never heard of named Perry Farrell will be writing a "crucial" song for Twilight the Movie:
In the meantime, though, Farrell has another huge gig coming up, and Vulture has the exclusive: He's writing a crucial song for Twilight, the movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's mega-selling young-adult vampire saga, due on November 21. The track is tentatively titled "Going All The Way (Into the Twilight)" and will be a Farrell solo venture produced by Atticus Ross and mixed by Alan Moulder. "I don't like to write albums anymore, because I have enough material in my life," Farrell told us. "I mean, I used to work on a record for, like, three and a half years and then people would only listen to or play two songs. I'd go, 'What happened to the other eleven songs?' So now I go, 'Here's one, here's one, here's one,' and they love them all."
I've never heard this guy sing, but I'll tell you one thing: he looks crazy. I love it.
Recent Edit: I couldn't avoid the curiosity and so I went on iTunes and listened to this Perry Farrell character sing, as well as some stuff by his former band, Jane's Addiction. He actually doesn't sound half bad. In fact, I like him. He's definitely got a different style and I think with just a bit of tweaking in the music and feel of his voice, it could totally work for Twilight. This movie is great because a handfull of unknowns will have their chance to really shine.
