Hana Pestle is an up and coming songstress that also happens to be a huge Twilight fan. Her song “Need” did well in our recent Soundtrack poll (results coming soon!) and now she’s doing all she can to bring her song to the attention of the New Moon filmmakers. We love the song, too, and think it would fit perfectly in New Moon.
Hana Pestle is a self-proclaimed Twilight fanatic. The nineteen year old singer/songwriter from Billings, Montana believes she has the perfect song for the next movie and has started a movement to get “Need” in the forthcoming New Moon. The hauntingly beautiful track was one of her first compositions written at only fifteen years old in 2004. It was produced /co-written for her album by Ben Moody (co-founder of Evanescence) and Michael “Fish” Herring with string arrangements by David Campbell and piano performance by David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry).
Here’s a video to fans that she made:
We caught up with Hana to ask her a couple of New Moon questions–
NewMoonMovie.org: If you could have your song play during any part of New Moon, what scene would it be, and why?
Hana Pestle: I think that my song would go perfectly right after Edward leaves Bella. I can see it playing when she’s wandering through the forest trying to follow him, as well as when the months are going by. The song is very desperate and despondent and I think that’s exactly how Bella feels right before and right after Edward leaves her.
