Bruno Mars Says 'Breaking Dawn' Song Shows 'Darker Side of Love'

 

 

billboard.com interviewed with Bruno Mars after it was announced that It Will Rain  will be the first single on  the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Soundtrack.

 

 

Just hours after it was announced that Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain" would be the first single from the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" soundtrack, he was already talking about going to the movie's premiere.

 

"Do I wear a Team Jacob shirt or a Team Edward shirt?," jokes the singer/songwriter. "You know what? I'm Team Bella all day."

 

Co-written and produced with the Smeezingtons (Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine), Mars had been working on what would become "It Will Rain" on the road before getting the call to contribute to the soundtrack. He says "after seeing the movie, I thought that it would be a perfect fit."

 

"It Will Rain" will be released globally on Sept. 27, for sale exclusively via iTunes (save for in the U.K., which will get the song in early November). On Sept. 26, the full tracklist for the Summit/Chop Shop/Atlantic album, due Nov. 8, will be revealed.

 

Mars says that "the 'Twilight' movies for me (are) a love story. But it's a dark love story. And I think the best way to describe the song is: it's the darker side of love. I think that pretty much sums it up."

 

"It Will Rain" "started off with me and the guitar," Mars says, "and I just had this melody in my head and basically laid it down after I saw the film."

 

Lucky Mars got to see "most of the movie" so he "could catch the vibe and feel where they were going with it." But, he doesn't know (or won't divulge) where the song will be heard in the film itself. "I have no idea! As long as it's not after the credits. I hope it's in a good (scene)!"

 

Mars says that "It Will Rain" is intended just for the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" soundtrack and not for his own on-the-horizon second album. "I personally think if I did this for the 'Twilight' soundtrack, then this is for the 'Twilight' soundtrack," he says. "This is not for my album."

 

His first album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in 2010 and has sold 1.3 million copies in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan. The first two "Twilight" soundtracks hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, while the third, "Eclipse," reached No. 2 last year. Collectively, they have shifted 4.5 million in the U.S.

 

Could we possibly see a collaboration in the future between Mars and "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson? The latter has been in the news after rumors started swirling about how he was working on his own album.(Turns out, he's not "working on an album right now.")

 

Don't rule it out: "Why not?," Mars says. "I'm down for anyone that wants to work and thinks I can contribute."

I think it's the song Bella and Jacob dance to at Bella and Edwards wedding. I can't wait to hear it Bruno Mars is very talented.
