The Loneliness of Distant Beings hits shelves in just six weeks, so I’m celebrating by sharing the playlist I’ve made for it. Most of these are songs I listened to while writing the book, and I always think that whatever you’re listening to has a massive effect on the atmosphere of what you end up with. Basically it’s the soundtrack to the movie you have playing in your head, the one you’re frantically typing away trying to record and evoke. And yeah, these are also the kinds of songs that should totally be used
when if (oh the hell with it) WHEN the book gets made into a film.
And I mean I reckon it would work pretty well as an accompaniment to reading too.
