So what does the birth of a universe sound like? Well, depending whom you ask, it may have the swanky sound of a Billie Holiday standard, the quiet angst of Radiohead or the relentless thrum of classic Iron Maiden.

What are we talking about? The official DC Universe: Rebirth Playlist, of course. DC now has a Spotify profile, and our debut playlist features musical selections chosen by several of the artists who worked on Geoff Johns’ just released DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1. These are songs that they listened to while working on the book. They’re tracks that inspired them and that they feel fans of DC and of DC Universe: Rebirth should check out.
