Music Inspired by The Lunar Chronicles

Talented singer/songwriter Beth Crowley based her song “Midnight” on Cinder. Listen to it on YouTube or buy the Porcelain Heart album on iTunes!


Besos Digitales, an “acid house” music band in my hometown of Tacoma, WA, based their song “The Glamour”  on Queen Levana and the Lunars. Listen to “The Glamour” by Besos Digitales here.
