Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are showing their love through song. The Twilight beauty and American Idol alum have released a 5-song EP, just weeks before the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. II.

The album, titled The Best Part, is described as “a stunning collection of sparse and beautiful alt-country songs.” The couple also has two tracks on the Breaking Dawn Pt. II soundtrack, and Reed, 24, even directed a music video for the song Now That I’ve Found You.

“When we were making this record we were so in the moment, and it feels unlike anything I’ve ever done before,” McDonald, 28, said of the project. “It’s amazing working with Nikki because she brings out a different side of me musically. Writing with her feels so natural, and so effortless.”

His wife added, “What makes this album special is the fact that Paul and I wrote every song on here together. I’ve always loved music and felt connected to it, but was too afraid to explore that avenue. It was Paul’s encouragement and talent that made me feel safe enough to try. We are inspired by the process itself. There is no greater feeling than doing something you love with someone you love. There will never be another record like this for us, because it’s as much about the message behind it as it is about the music. ”

The Best Part will be available on iTunes and through iamnikkireed.com and thepaulmacdonald.com.
