Listen to Vampire Weekend’s ‘Twilight: Eclipse’ soundtrack song

Appropriate this track rings of The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love.”

Vampire Weekend’s contribution to the “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” soundtrack, “Jonathan Low,” has finally made its way to the ‘net, and it’s actually a surprising contrast to the New York-based band’s output. It tends toward the dreamy rather than the crisp, tight tunes of the band’s last “Contra” and self-titled sets. Take “Holiday,” for example, a track whose video debuted just yesterday.

The 12-string, sunny, fleshy, full song may be a change, too, from the remainder of the compilation, which has promised the moodiness of Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision,” Metric’s space-rock, the ilk.

“Jonathan Low” debuted on Zane Lowe’s BBC show, but we got it courtesy of Consequence of Sound, which included blurbs about how the song came about.

“Eclipse” the film is out June 30. The soundtrack drops June 8.
