K. W. Keith

Award-winning author weaving a new, dramatic tale of erotic romance

Good music makes you feel.

So much of the human experience is conveyed and understood through music. Although mere minutes in length, a song transports you into another life, someone else's story, yet this protagonist you've never met seems to have intimate knowledge of your own life. However brief the composition, we live the words, we feel the notes, and the emotions evoked by both have the power to overwhelm us. Whether it's the galvanizing rush from Mumford and Sons' "Below My Feet," hopeful tears throughout the entire second movement of Dvorak's "New World Symphony," or imperative dancing commanded by those first beats of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean," people connect through music across time, culture, and circumstance. Whole worlds exist in small measures, bringing all forms of pathos along with it - whether we're ready to listen or not.

In my short life I've found nothing so profoundly moving as music, and I couldn't imagine telling this story without it.

I humbly submit to you the complete soundtrack of all songs specifically mentioned in Supernova, plus the ones that play in my head elsewhere in the novel. Here you'll find a master list detailing each song and its location in the book, along with an official iTunes playlist where I invite you to preview each gem firsthand.

Happy listening!
