Invada Records release the All About Eve – Original Music, composed by PJ Harvey. The ten original pieces of instrumental music as well as two new songs written by Harvey and sung by Gillian Anderson and Lily James are available on CD and LP. The physical release also includes demo versions of ‘The Sandman’ and The Moth’, performed by PJ Harvey. Harvey’s score for All About Eve, is performed by herself, James Johnston and Kenrick Rowe, and uses Franz Liszt’s ‘Liebesträume’ (a musical element of Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s original 1950s classic film) as a musical touchstone, exploring the more somber and deeply psychological aspects of the story. The album is produced by PJ Harvey, with additional production and mixing from Adam ‘Cecil’ Bartlett.
Harvey began her collaboration with theatre director Ivo van Hove late 2018 for a modern stage adaptation of the classic 1950 Academy Award-winning film. The play, starring Gillian Anderson (X-Files, The Fall, American Gods, Sex Education) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Baby Driver) will run until May 11 at London’s Noël Coward Theatre in the West End.
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.”
