Music from the stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be released later this year.
The album of music from the show by Grammy winning singer/songwriter/musician Imogen Heap will be put out by Sony on November 2.
The Music of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is presented as four "contemporary musical suites", each showcasing one of the play’s theatrical acts as they play out on stage, further reworked from the live production.
"This album is like nothing I’ve ever attempted before," Imogen said. With over 100 moments of music in the play, the challenge was how to weave them together, and I think it has manifested into a really enjoyable listen, with memories for those who’ve seen the play, musical accompaniment to those with the script of the play or simply just to enjoy the music as a stand-alone album.
"It is crafted to be listened to in its entirety, taking the listener through different worlds within each suite. I don’t know another album like it. I hope others enjoy listening to it as much as I’ve enjoyed making it.”
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany, launched in July 2016.
