PJ Harvey releases 'All About Eve' score


PJ Harvey has released the official score she created for the new Ivo van Hove-directed play All About Eve.

Starring the likes of Gillian Anderson and Lily James, the play is a new adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.

“I have always loved stories, and so to compose music to support and enhance a story being told is a challenge I enjoy,” PJ Harvey said in a statement. “I also love the freedom that working instrumentally can give me without the constraints of song form.”

She added: “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.”
