Don't Sleep: New Music From Lupe Fiasco

Here's that Lupe track for the New Moon soundtrack (which is out today). He really rocks out on this one.

In a post on his MySpace page, Lupe opened up about the creative process behind the track, called "Solar Midnite," and why it's such a unique tune for him.

" 'Solar Midnite' is my first commercial release that I actually produced as well as wrote," he said in the post. "The 'New Moon' team asked me if I could do a song specifically for the film."

That invitation led to an opportunity that would make any "Twilight" fan's head explode: Lupe got to see "New Moon" before its November 20 release date. "They invited me to an early screening of the unfinished film, from which I pulled different elements that I thought would translate into a great song," he wrote. "I pulled in vocalist and bassist Graham Burris and acclaimed musician Matt Nelson to help fill out my vision musically and ... 'Solar Midnite' was born."

"The song basically deals with the chaotic love story that takes place between the characters," he said. "It's more on the rock side of my musical catalog and comes straight from my die-hard fanhood of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Anthony Kiedis, one of my favorite rappers."
