The official soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 hits store shelves (and online outlets) on November 8th, and today the first single – Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain” – dropped, offering some doo-wop sadness in place of the franchise’s typical indie angst.
You can check out the new song below the full track listing and CD cover art. “After seeing the movie, I thought that it would be a perfect fit,” Mars said told MTV. “The ‘Twilight’ movies for me [are] a love story. But it’s a dark love story,” he added, “and I think the best way to describe the song is: It’s the darker side of love. I think that pretty much sums it up.”
