T2 Exclusive! Last year Twilight got a deluxe soundtrack before the DVD release and it looks like New Moon will get one too, only a little different. On March 16th (4 days before the DVD release), The Twilight Saga: New Moon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Companion will be released. But instead of a couple new tracks, it will consist of the bonus tracks from the international copies of the soundtrack provided by artists that lived in the region it was released in with the exception of Japan’s track, Miliyah Kato’s “Destiny”, but that could be because she has it as a b-side to one of her singles and it wasn’t exclusive to the soundtrack.
