Girl from the North Country announces cast recording

The new album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and features the full cast

A full cast recording of Conor McPherson's musical play Girl From the North Country, based on the music and lyrics of Bob Dylan, will be released on 29 September.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the album will feature 19 tracks from the full 20-piece company of singers and musicians, including stars such as Shirley Henderson, Ciarán Hinds and Sheila Atim. The album can be pre-ordered now from Amazon and will also be available to stream online at the end of the month.

Writer and director Conor McPherson said: "I’m so delighted the brilliant talent of our cast will be captured at Abbey Road Studios. It’s been an honour working with them on Bob Dylan's incredible songs. The reaction from audiences every night and the clamour for a recording has been overwhelming and is a true testament to their stunning voices."

Girl From the North Country is set in Bob Dylan's hometown of Duluth, Minnesota and weaves the Nobel Prize winner's songs into a tale of the Great Depression.

The Girl From the North Country will run at the Old Vic until 8 October.
