All About Eve — Original Music, composed by double Mercury Music
Prize-winner PJ Harvey. ‘All About Eve’ is the stage adaption directed
by Ivo Van Hove.
The 14-track album contains 10 original pieces of instrumental music, as
well as two new songs written by Harvey and sung by Gillian Anderson
and Lily James.
The physical release also includes demo versions of ‘The Sandman’ and The Moth’, performed by PJ Harvey.
On composing this score, Harvey says, “I have always loved stories, and
so to compose music to support and enhance a story being told is a
challenge I enjoy. I also love the freedom that working instrumentally
can give me without the constraints of song form.” “For All About Eve I
chose to work with my long-time collaborator James Johnston as he has a
soulfulness and sensitivity to his playing that inspires me. I also
worked with Kenrick Rowe who has a versatility to his drumming I knew I
could experiment with until I found what was right.”
