Check out pictures of Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Billy Burke on the set of Eclipse

The official track list was released and has big names like Thom York of Radiohead, The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie and Muse as well as indie favorites like Bon Ivar and St. Vincent.  We caught up with Annie Clark of St. Vincent while she was walking through the streets of Manhattan and she told us about her new video, Marrow, why being on tour is more normal than being at home for her, and of course revealed exclusively to if she is Team Edward or Team Jacob.

RadarOnline: Thanks so much for talking with me today.  How are you?

Annie Clark: My pleasure, I like RadarOnline!  Before we get started I have to tell someone what I just saw before I forget!  I'm in Washington Square Park, it's a beautiful day, I just walked past a girl who is fast asleep and the book that she was reading is Gravity's Rainbow.  That would make me fall asleep too! I'm excited about your song being on the New Moon soundtrack, but I just watched your video for Marrow this morning.

Annie: I filmed that in Napa Valley in the middle of August. I think it's like a 70s horror flick.

Annie: The idea was to make it like a real life creepy, those guys the producers do creepy really well, it's one of my favorite things.  I read the treatment and I liked that it was open ended and I liked their special effects with the people moving back and forth, they're such nice guys, it was nice to work with them again.

Annie: We don't have any plans to do that. You're not planning on seeing Justin any time soon?

Annie: I'm about to go on tour Tuesday, and I'll be out of commission for the next couple of months, I go out with Grizzly Bear after I go out with Andrew Bird. Do you expect or hope on your tour that the concerts will be attracting a lot more concerts or fans now because of Twilight?

Annie: I'm not really expecting that, if that happens it will be a surprise to me.  I'm not totally expecting that that would happen, in fact, I don't know that that will happen at all.  Certainly, the thing that inspired me to do the Twilight soundtrack is I was a suburban teen, kind of still am a suburban teen at heart, I remember being 15 and hearing the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack or seeing the movie The Craft and the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, I love the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, so all of these things as a kid growing up I wouldn't have come across cool music if it wasn't in films. Not every town or city has an awesome local record shop, they have a Target.

Radar: Have you read New Moon?

Annie: No. Are you a fan?

Annie: The truth is all of my sisters are.  I have a big family and once the Twilight thing got announced that I was going to be on the soundtrack, I guess my dad read about it in the New York Times.  So I got a call from my older sister, who is 39 and she squealed with delight and I got a call from my nine year old sister and she screamed with delight so I was more looking at it as it would be a really fun way to collaborate with Justin and Bon Iver, this will be a fun thing to do, and then my sisters brought it to my attention because they were so excited! Has your life changed since the announcement was made earlier this week?

Annie: No.  I haven't checked Myspace, maybe there are more Myspace plays, I haven't even checked it, but other than that all the women in my family and extended family are thrilled and have asked me if I will take them to the premier so they can meet Robert Pattinson!
