And in case you've only heard of a couple of these artists *raising my hand here* you can check out MTV's Quick Guide to some of the lesser-known artists. Then jump on over to Amazon to pre-order your copy.

Thanks to TwiCrack Addict.

**Update**Not surprisingly, the girls of Letters to Twilight have far outdone the MTV Quick Guide to the artists of the soundtrack with their own overview. Here is an excerpt...
As explained on Stephenie Meyer’s website as well as the super awesome New Moon Soundtrack site “…all of the music is original, and exclusive to the soundtrack.” Though I have to point out that Muse song was released on their latest album The Resistance, but according to them they were asked by Chris Weitz to cut a different version of the song. All that to say not only is it exciting that we’ll be hearing all (almost) new music but how telling is it that this saga can get TOP artists like Thom freaking York to cut all new music for it?! That’s called pull and this saga’s got it.
They have information and music and/or video samples from each soundtrack artist. I highly recommend you check it out. You can read the rest of their post here. Thanks to Moon for writing this wonderful post and UC for making sure we didn't miss it.

Great line up!
Definitely will check out the soundtrack.

I think they should have included "Stockholm Syndrome" by Muse.

The chorus goes "This is the last time I'll abandon you."

Perfect for the story New Moon.

Is the Thom Yorke that's listed THE Thom Yorke from Radiohead?
