The Official Soundtrack for "Heaven Isn't Me"



We asked Darlene Campos to curate a Spotify playlist for her book, Heaven Isn’t Me and she selected 20 incredible songs featuring R.E.M., The Killers, U2, The Smiths and Mumford & Sons.

This playlist is complied of songs I listened to on repeat in high school and early college days, but some of them are songs I stumbled upon while writing HEAVEN ISN’T ME. Frightened Rabbit’s song titled “Dead Now” was blasting in the background each time I wrote Elysian’s panic attack scenes.

Each one of these songs inspired Heaven Isn’t Me as a whole, some of them a tad bit more than others. I hope you enjoy these tunes as much as I did while creating this story.
