The Mystery of Heaven is the second collaborative album by Jozef van Wissem & Jim Jarmusch.[6] It was released on Sacred Bones Records in 2012.[7]

The track "The More She Burns the More Beautifully She Glows" features a guest appearance from actress Tilda Swinton.[8]


Bob Boilen of NPR said: "The album is gritty but not in-your-face; it's pretty, but there's nothing delicate about it. It's a rich, appropriately cinematic sound."[9]
