Summit Entertainment, Chop Shop Records and Atlantic Records have announced the release of "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK,” the musical companion to the highly anticipated fourth installment in Summit's worldwide blockbuster film franchise. Due in stores and online Tuesday, November 8, the soundtrack's release date was revealed this past Saturday, August 13 on The Twilight Saga's various social networks, in celebration of the wedding anniversary of lead characters Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. The collection's tracklisting will be revealed in the next few weeks. The film release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 comes to theatres nationwide on November 18.

Chop Shop Music Supervision owner Alexandra Patsavas (Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl) returns as the “BREAKING DAWN” soundtrack album Producer/Music Supervisor who worked closely with the film’s director Bill Condon in compiling the tracklisting. Paul Katz of Eye2Ear Music serves as both the producer of the album as well as Summit’s point person on film-related music and soundtracks.

Released in November of 2008, "TWILIGHT - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" topped the Billboard 200 chart upon its release, marking the largest debut for an Atlantic Records soundtrack since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. In addition, "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" topped the Billboard 200 in its first full week at retail in October of 2009. Combined, all three soundtracks have sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide and have remained on Billboard’s “Top 100 Soundtracks” chart since being released.
