Snow Patrol, the Flaming Lips, the Killers, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jet are among the acts contributing tracks to the “Spider-Man 3” soundtrack, due May 1 via Record Collection. Snow Patrol’s “Signal Fire” is the set’s first single and can be streamed from the soundtrack’s Web site.
The Flaming Lips chip in with “The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How To Be in Love,” while the Killers offer “Move Away” and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs contribute “Sealings.” Beyond new tracks from Wolfmother, the Walkmen, Black Mountain, Rogue Wave and the Oohlas, the soundtrack also includes a track from actor Jason Schwartzman and “Spider-Man 3” star Kirsten Dunst, recording as Coconut Records.
“Peter Parker never seems to get over his introverted lack of confidence, at least in the classic comic books I remember,” Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne told Billboard.com today (March 29) in the midst of a tornado warning in his Oklahoma City hometown. “I was looking for some excuse to write a fight song, and then this came up. It has the chiming of the bell when they go into the ring. It’s silly, but with the right storyline, it can be a lot of fun.”
A special edition of the album is also in the planning stages, with details to be announced. “Spider-Man 3” opens May 4 in U.S. theaters.
