Last year, with the release of ARTEFACT in ebook, I shared the musical inspiration behind the writing of the book. During the process, several composers, musicians and bands acted as muse: they became essential to the book. Lots of readers enjoyed that article, and I thought that with the paperback release of ARTEFACT I’d take the post a step further.

LAZARUS WAR: ARTEFACT

And so I present the Director’s Cut OST of THE LAZARUS WAR: ARTEFACT

Now, obviously, these songs are really just inspirational tracks that relate to the chapters. Some of them will probably take you longer to listen to than to read the relevant chapter, whilst others are very short and the opposite will be true. A year on from my original post, I’m also much tech-savvier and so I’ve included links to Spotify if you wanted to listen to the track online (I’m not endorsed, sponsored affiliated or otherwise related to Spotify: but I think it’s a pretty cool service, and you can sign up and listen to songs for free!).
