Music Notes: Thom Yorke writes new song for Twilight sequel, Phish revive festival

- Thom Yorke and Bon Iver are confirmed for the New Moon soundtrack. Chris Weitz, director of the Twilight sequel, revealed this information at San Diego Comic-Con. In regards to Yorke's track, he said he hadn't listened to it yet, but added that "unless it's sounds of him belching, I think I'll put it in." [SPIN]

- Phish will hold a three-day festival — Festival 8 — in Indio, California this Halloween. The concerts will take place from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1. On Halloween night, the band will perform another band's album in its entirety, reviving a tradition for the first time since 1998. Tickets go on sale this coming Monday, July 27. [Rolling Stone]

- Amy Winehouse has been cleared of an assault charge stemming from an accusation that she had attacked a dancer last September. [NME]

- Blur haven't really discussed the possibility of continuing their reunion. It does look like the band had a good time. Bassist Alex James, who said the band's Glastonbury 2009 gig was the best they'd ever done, said, "I've spent the last week staring at a bonfire muttering to myself. I haven't been able to contain the joy that [the reunion concerts] brought to all of us. It was very, very emotional. Everything we hoped it would be and more." Well, I'm still holding out hope for some US shows even though chances are looking slim... [Pitchfork]
