13 Seconds to Love is the third album by Filipino rock band, Kjwan. It was first launched on digital format on 6 February 2009 at A. Venue Mall (Makati City), preloaded on Nokia 5800 XpressMusic cellphones. Although the album was released around 21 July 2009 through MCA Music Philippines, it was only until exactly a month later that the CD was officially launched at Saguijo (Makati City).
A Malaysian DJ/producer once told Kjwan that he can tell whether a song will be a hit within the first thirteen seconds. It stuck with the band and brought this along with their song writing with love as the common theme.
Kjwan focused mainly on the album's songwriting and put flashy guitar solos, drum fills, and complicated odd-time bits on the backseat resulting to a different sound from the band's two previous albums. 13 Seconds to Love also marks Jorel's break with the band to pursue his studies at Berklee College of Music.
