(Atlantic Records) Chop Shop/Atlantic Records has announced the release of its deluxe CD/DVD version of "Twilight Original Motion Picture Soundtrack." The special two-disc edition of the RIAA platinum certified soundtrack is the musical companion to the blockbuster Summit Entertainment film, which will be in stores March 21st.

The "Twilight" deluxe edition appends five songs to the chartbuster soundtrack, including a previously unreleased track from O.A.R. as well as an acoustic version of the album's hit single, Paramore's "Decode" (see attached tracklisting). The DVD features exclusive interviews with both Hayley Williams of Paramore and Twilight music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, who discusses the process of choosing and placing the music in the film. Also included is the "Decode" companion video (as well as a behind-the-scenes documentary), The Black Ghosts' "Full Moon" video, and a live performance of Iron & Wine's "Flightless Bird, American Mouth."

MuteMath's "Spotlight" has also been announced as the soundtrack's second single. The track is impacting now at Modern Rock outlets nationwide, with a companion video set to premiere shortly. "Spotlight" follows the massive success of Paramore's "Decode," a top 5 Modern Rock smash and a genuine MySpace sensation with over 52.5 million streams.

"Twilight—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" made an explosive #1 debut atop the SoundScan/Billboard 200 album chart upon its November 2008 release and has remained in the top 20 for 17 weeks and counting. With first-week sales of 165,000 units, this marked the largest debut for an Atlantic Records soundtrack since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. In addition, "TWILIGHT" broke records as the biggest digital album debut of a theatrical soundtrack in SoundScan history. With total worldwide sales now exceeding 2.5 million, the soundtrack has also proven a global phenomenon, earning platinum certification in Australia and Canada, as well as gold certification in Korea, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico, Germany, and the Philippines.

In addition to a second previously unreleased song from Paramore called "I Caught Myself," the soundtrack features tracks from Muse, Linkin Park, Collective Soul, Iron & Wine, Perry Farrell, and the Black Ghosts. As if that weren't enough, TWILIGHT star Robert Pattinson (who plays Edward Cullen) has contributed an original song, "Never Think"—his first-ever released recording. The film's score was composed by Carter Burwell, and the soundtrack also includes his "Bella's Lullaby," a heartfelt song that Edward composes for Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart) in the film.
