While pop culture awaits the year’s most anticipated film, Twilight: New Moon, the ‘edgier’ public hungers its soundtrack (Out October 20th). As it has been discussed across the web, it is an enormous and attractive disc that includes songs by Grizzly Bear, Thom Yorke, Bon Iver feat. St. Vincent, Lykke Li, Death Cab for Cutie among many others. The tracklist was revealed about a week ago or so, this morning there is news regarding a song by Ximena Sariñana is on it. It’s very confusing; it’s hard to imagine they will be able to slide in another song just like that, so it might be an add-on or an extra track for the digital release.
Let’s hope it’s anything but a marketing technique, it would be lame to see her song (titled “Frente al Mar”) only on the surface of profit. Meaning that if the song is only utilized in its marketing (TV spots on Univision-Telemundo-MTV Tr3s) and not on the soundtrack in some way or another, it would be a letdown. We don’t need another one of those Jason Mraz featuring Ximena Sariñana kind of moments. Let’s see how everything is handled, in the meantime, congrats Ximena!
