Original post: The producers from theHarry Potter and the Cursed Child‘s play announced the official release of the show’s soundtrack, composed by Imogen Heap, for November 2nd, 2018.

The album, which was named The Music from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in four contemporary suites by Imogen Heap, will be released by Sony Music Masterworks. Announced as four musical suites, one for each act of the play, the album includes songs used throughout the play in a chronological order but intertwined in a unique way.

“I think it [the album] 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 standalone album.” explained the composer to Pottermore. “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”, she said.
