Breaking Dawn movie soundtrack artist Christina Perri sat down with Access Bay Area magazine to chat about her contribution to the soundtrack and what inspires her!
“I’m actually most excited about the fans,” says Perri, a self-proclaimed member of “Team Edward,” as she shows off her wrist tattoo that reads “bitten” in the title font of the book series. “I think ‘twihards’ are my people and my tribe.”
Perri is the only superfan, however, to garner an advanced screening of Breaking Dawn’s first installment, and to write the first single off the motion picture’s soundtrack: a warmhearted wedding ballad called “A Thousand Years.”
“I just felt this movie was super romantic and this song that I wrote was the vibe of the movie,” she says. “I wrote it about the purest type of relationship and marriage and all this stuff that I don’t know anything about. I had to jump into their relationship in my head. For it to be chosen is magic — It’s been my favorite thing ever.”
And love is the recurring, profound muse that fuels the majority of her songwriting process.
“My songs are all inspired by love, but even more so the feelings that come with love,” says Perri, who has been a lyricist since age 15. “Like the good and the bad, the fear and sadness, just as much as the excitement and butterflies — I think I have songs that cover all angles of that.”
