Iron & Wine
Watch Iron & Wine Perform ‘Flightless Bird, American Mouth’ on Tonight Show with Jay Leno from Breaking Dawn Soundtrack
Last night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Iron & Wine performed “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” from the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack and now you can watch it online!
Fast forward to about 38:30 into the video, and you’ll see Sam Beam work his magic with his angelic voice.
The song was on the original Twilight soundtrack and the version used for Breaking Dawn Part 1 is the new “Wedding Version” recorded specially for the movie.
Needless to say, it still sounds gorgeous! Always a treat to see him play live-I’ve had the pleasure a couple of times in person!36 Comments
The Breaking Dawn Soundtrack is now available! The deluxe version with extra tracks and video is on iTunes.
UPDATE: You can download the deluxe version with video and extra tracks on Amazon for only $9.99!, $5 less than iTunes!

Breaking Dawn Part 1 Soundtrack Influential Music Supervisor Shines Spotlight on Little Known Rockers
Inspired by Stephanie Meyer’s love for bands like Muse and playlists posted on her website before the movies even came out, soundtrack supervisor Alexandra Patsavas worked her magic.
Out of the 15 acts of the bands on the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack, four are unsigned. How were the songs picked?
For the latest installment, Ms. Patsavas says she and her Chop Shop team of seven people weeded through 2,000 song submissions, then worked with director Bill Condon and editor Virginia Katz to decide on the best fits. Coloring the overall sound: the climactic wedding between the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and his mortal love Bella (Kristen Stewart). Ms. Patsavas says she hunted for numbers that could be used (and now undoubtedly will be) at real-life weddings.
I’m incredibly impressed by the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack after hearing it during the exclusive event. I’ve already pre-ordered the digital version from but wish they had a a version on vinyl for collectors!

Check out the video of Iron & Wine’s Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version) from the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Soundtrack! No Breaking Dawn footage, but still enjoyed this so much! So beautiful. I love that Kristen Stewart picked this song for Twilight.
Can you picture Bella and Edward dancing to this at their wedding? And he dips her and kisses her neck!

If you’re trying to wrap your head around how Iron & Wine’s song “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” will translate into the “Wedding Version” promised for the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack, here’s one possibility.
You could do much worse than these piano covers recorded by talented musicians on YouTube.
My favorite version is above. Listen to 10 more variations below.11 Comments
Iron & Wine will be making a return to the Twilight universe, straight onto the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack, with their track “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”.
However, it will be a new version, not the version used on the Twilight Soundtrack.
Iron & Wine have recorded a new “Wedding Version” of the song just for Breaking Dawn. Check out the original version of the track above.34 Comments
