The Vampire Diaries official soundtrack debuts October 12!

Do you get chills whenever that background music swells up to clue you in that Damon is about to pounce? Or do you melt at the romantic ballads that set the mood for Stefan and Elena trading lovey dovey looks? Well, now’s your chance to own the original recordings that bring the passion and suspense of The Vampire Diaries to life every week. On October 12, Virgin Records is releasing Original Television Soundtrack: The Vampire Diaries, a collection of 16 tracks that were either heard on season one or will debut in the new season that happens to begin tonight. The CD, available for pre-order on Amazon, aims to recreate the show’s “darkly compelling and sensous vibe” with cover songs,  including Placebo doing Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” and Digital Daggers taking on Tears for Fears’ “Head Over Heels,” and original tunes such as “Sleep Alone” by Bat for Lashes. Other artists featured include Smashing Pumpkins, Gorillaz and Internet singing star Sky Ferreira performing the CD’s showcase single “Obsession.” Ferreria’s debut CD drops early next year. Here’s a link to the CD’s official site. Too bad they didn’t remake Elton John’s “The Bitch is Back” to celebrate the return of Katherine.
