PJ Harvey shares two new songs from All About Eve play

Two-time Mercury Prize winner PJ Harvey has shared two new songs written to accompany the stage adaptation of the classic 1950 film All About Eve. You can listen to both tracks here.

The songs, Descending and The Moth, will feature on the upcoming soundtrack for All About Eve, which is due to be released on April 12.

Descending features vocals from Lily James, while The Moth is an instrumental track.

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.”

All About Eve debuted in London earlier this year.
