PJ Harvey has released two new songs written to accompany the All About Eve stage play.
The songs, ‘Descending’ and ‘The Moth’, will feature on the upcoming soundtrack for All About Eve, released on April 12.
‘Descending’ features vocals from Lily James whilst ‘The Moth’ is an instrumental track. You can listen to both here:
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’.
In 2016, Harvey also treated fans to previously unreleased song, ‘Guilty’, which was recorded at London’s Somerset House during sessions for her 2016 album, ‘Hope Six Demolition Project’.
