After the play’s expansion to countries worldwide, composer Imogen Heap’s award-winning Cursed Child score will be made available publicly for the very first time on November 2nd, 2018!

The new album, titled The Music of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will comprise of the music heard throughout the play – in chronological order and magically reworked to “transport listeners on a sonic journey through the world of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”. The score is  written, composed, performed and recorded by the incredible Grammy and Ivor Novello Award winner Imogen Heap.

Releasing via Sony Music Masterworks on November 2nd, the album is available to order NOW on Amazon for £9.99.

Imogen Heap explains more about her creation of the score in her comments on the release of this unique album:

““This album is like nothing I’ve ever attempted before. It’s four suites containing music from each of the four acts of the play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. 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.”
