Damon Albarn has composed the score for the film adaptation of his sister Jessica's short story The Boy In The Oak.

The book, which was published in 2010, tells the story of a young boy's experience with an enchanted tree behind his house and the fairies that inhabit it.

Jude Law is lined up to narrate the short film, with Luke Losey, who has directed videos for Orbital and Mercury Rev, also involved, reports Electronicbeats.net

The film adaptation of The Boy In The Oak is due to be released in spring this year. It has not been announced if Albarn's score will be released separately.

Albarn recently finished his world tour with Gorillaz.
