"No Sound But the Wind" is a song by British indie rock band Editors, and is featured on The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack. The song was first played at the Glastonbury festival 2008 and has gone through many changes; the Twilight soundtrack version features several new lyrics.

Tom Smith has revealed that he was inspired to write the song after reading Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road and the song has soon become established as part of Editors' live shows and a fan favourite.

The song was released as a single in 2010. The single version of the song was a live performance from the Belgian festival Rock Werchter and it managed to climb to number 1 in Belgium, making it Editors' second chart-topping hit in Belgium (the first being "Papillon"). On 18 December 2010, the single received golden record-status after a live concert at Het Glazen Huis in Antwerp from Studio Brussels. The song was later certified platinum by the Belgian Entertainment Association.[1]

The music video for the song is the live performance from Rock Werchter 2010. Despite the single's success in Belgium, it was not released or made available in the United Kingdom.
