“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,” Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt told Yahoo! “We have always been impressed with the way the Twilight soundtracks are so carefully curated.”
Other acts featured on the Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack include Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Paul McDonald and wife/series star Nikki Reed, Feist, The Boom Circuits, POP ETC, Iko, A Boy and His Kite, James Vincent McMorrow, Reeve Carney, Carter Burwell and Twilight soundtrack alums St. Vincent (who contributed to the New Moon album) and Christina Perri (who previously appeared on the Breaking Dawn — Part 1 soundtrack).
