NEW VIDEO: Christina Perri from Twilight: Breaking Dawn

Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" became the first song off of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1” soundtrack to premiere a video.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Perri’s song was to be the second single, with Bruno Mars’ "It Will Rain” making its debut in the first slot; however, the singer announced on Twitter that he was still working on his video.

So, Perri’s video, which was originally planned to debut on November 10, was moved up to this week.

Perri, who told The Hollywood Reporter that she’s a big fan of the series, says she was inspired to write the song after screening an early version of Breaking Dawn. “I cried the whole time, then I went home and wrote the song about Edward and Bella and their love affair. It's probably the most romantic, lovey-dovey song I've ever written.”

Perri will be part of a unique promotional tour that will feature select members of the Cullen clan, including Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone, as well as performances from musicians featured on the soundtrack.

The tour, which runs November 7-11, will hit five U.S. cities, kicking off in Atlanta and traveling to concert venues in Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco and Salt Lake City.

Perri is slated to play three dates on the tour, which will perform one week before The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens nationally on November 11.
