A White Demon Love Song

Album: New Moon Soundtrack (2009)
  • This song is from the soundtrack of the 2009 movie New Moon. Spin magazine asked drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr: how the Killers got involved and if they were worried about contributing to a film targeted at "tweens." He replied: "Music co-ordinator Alexandra Patsavas really has her s--t together, and it was a great line-up. She had some really great ideas. Before any of this happened, we got to meet with the director, Chris Weitz, and he's fully aware of what's going on and he wanted to surround the film with good music so it wasn't about 11-year-old girls. And, if it is, at least you're giving them some good music to listen to.... Movies and soundtracks are good ways to get your music out there [to new fans], as long as you're surrounded by good people."
