This track is featured on the soundtrack of the movie, New Moon. It is a bonus track, only available as a download through iTunes.
Fiasco blogged on his MySpace page about the creative process for this track. He wrote: "'Solar Midnite' is my first commercial release that I actually produced as well as wrote. The New Moon team asked me if I could do a song specifically for the film." He added: "They invited me to an early screening of the unfinished film, from which I pulled different elements that I thought would translate into a great song. I pulled in vocalist and bassist Graham Burris and acclaimed musician Matt Nelson to help fill out my vision musically and... 'Solar Midnite' was born."
The New Moon movie deals with a tricky love triangle between Bella Swan, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black. Fiasco explained that it was this storyline, which inspired the track: "The song basically deals with the chaotic love story that takes place between the characters. It's more on the rock side of my musical catalog and comes straight from my die-hard fanhood of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Anthony Kiedis, one of my favorite rappers."
