Shiva was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the 1st track on 48:13.


Shiva, which is styled as (shiva) in the tracklisting, is an instrumental track and has been described by Serge as the "opening titles" of the album, inspired by Stanley Kubrick.[1] It is intentionally quieter than the rest of the songs, so the listener would turn up the volume in time for Bumblebeee to kick in.[2] An extended version of the song was previously as background music for one of Aitor Throup's fashion shows in January 2013.[3]


Shiva has been used as an intro several times during the 48:13 Tour, notably before Kasabian's headline performance at Glastonbury Festival in June 2014.
