Fans of Robert Pattinson‘s singing voice (which, we’re guessing, includes all Robert Pattinson fans) will be thrilled to learn that the actor is lending his voice to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn‘s soundtrack. Pattinson previously sang two songs on the original Twilight soundtrack and has discussed his passion for music in the past, including RPattz’s time as a rapper named Big Tub.
On this latest soundtrack, Pattinson will be singing “Renesmee’s Lullaby,” a song for which there are already several fan-made internet variations, because it was “composed” by Edward Cullen in the Breaking Dawn book. The film version of the lullaby was written by Twilight composer Carter Burwell, who Tweeted that Pattinson will film the singing scene for Breaking Dawn, Part 2 this week. Burwell also writes that he is impressed by Pattinson’s musical abilities, saying “Many films have an actor sitting at a keyboard, swaying back and forth, pretending to play music that was only written after the film has been shot and edited. This case was unusual in that Rob is a fine musician, and fully capable of playing the piano or probably any other instrument.” Alas, we’ll still have to wait till 2012 to see the performance.
