The new score was released today
PJ Harvey has now shared the complete score for the stage play of All About Eve, following the release of two teaser songs earlier this week.
The play, directed by Ivo Van Hove and starring Lily James and Gillian Anderson, is currently running at London’s Noël Coward Theatre.
Both stars appear on the score, with James adding vocals to ‘The Moth’ (released earlier this week) whilst Anderson appears on ‘The Sandman’.

Speaking about the score, PJ Harvey said: “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.”
She continued: “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.”
Last year, the musician released new track ‘An Acre of Land’, a personal take on the traditional British folk song. The song was written for British film Dark River, a thriller that focuses on the tension between two siblings after their father’s death.
Harvey created the track with film composer Harry Escott, who also worked on ‘Hard Candy’ and ‘Shame’.
