When the people responsible for putting together the soundtrack for Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 heard the song “Bittersweet” produced by Skrillex and Ellie Goulding, they were ecstatic to get the song in the soundtrack that ends the series.
They liked it enough that it was supposed to be the lead song. Being the incredibly talented and busy musicians they are… having time to expand further on the production of the song would have been a bit of a crunch. They replied “hell yeah” when asked to put the song on the soundtrack though.
In an interview with MTV, Ellie Goulding describes the song as “waking up in the morning and hoping that the person feels the same way as you”. The lyrics and melodies of the song fit well with the intensity and theme of the film that any Twilight fan will love to listen to. “Cause you always want what your running from”. The official soundtrack is set to be released on November 13th.
