PJ Harvey Releases Two Songs From All About Eve Soundtrack

Tuesday, 09 April 2019 Written by Helen Payne

PJ Harvey can turn her hand to anything.

The multi-award-winning singer and songwriter has composed the score for a new West End production of Ivo Van Hove’s All About Eve, the soundtrack of which is due to arrive on April 12 via Lakeshore/Invada.

Ahead of the release, Harvey has shared two cuts. The Moth features guest vocals by Lily James and Descending is a dramatic instrumental number.

Speaking to Pitchfork, Harvey said:

“I also love the freedom that working instrumentally can give me without the constraints of song form.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.”

The play is currently showing at the Noël Coward Theatre in London, where it will run until May 11. Tickets are available here.

Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
