Paramore’s new song “Decode” will be the lead single for the novel-based Twilight film. Another song, currently unnamed, will also be featured on the film’s soundtrack.
Hayley Williams from Paramore is a huge Twilight fan and recently talked about her love of the books and the song’s title:
“Twilight is the first series of books I’ve ever read. I didn’t get into the Harry Potter series even though I love the movies. Twilight really caught my attention and held it. I’m really excited to see the book adapted to film and excited that our band gets to be a part of the phenomenon. I chose the title “Decode” because the song is about the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward. Bella’s is the only mind Edward can’t read and I feel like that’s a big part of the first book and one of the obstacles for them to overcome. It’s one added tension that makes the story even better.” — Hayley Williams, Paramore
It has been confirmed that the band will shoot a video around October 13. Decode was released on October 1, 2008 on the Paramore Fan Club site as well as Stephanie Meyer‘s website. You can also check out the song below:
